Guy Visits Museum And Uses FaceApp To Make Serious Classical Art Characters Smile

We’ve gone from portraits taking months and years to complete to endless selfies flooding our newsfeed.

When people were forced to sit through the not so fun process of having their portrait painted, they took it seriously.

Perhaps that’s why most of them are less than amused in each of these classical art paintings.

One artist noticed their despair and decided to shake things up.

On a trip to Amsterdam, London-based designer Olly Gibbs visited the Rijksmuseum and took photos of the sad looking individuals in the portraits using his FaceApp-enabled smartphone that can put a smile on just about any frowning face.

Hilarity ensued and the miserable faces became instantly entertaining adding some charm to the classical art collection.
