This is blowing my mind right now! I would never have thought I'd be so happy to see 18th Century people act like regular people. It's never even crossed my mind that these guys actually laughed and had senses of humor. Blown. 馃憤

I will say that I've seen at least two of these in person and they are even more magnificent than on the internet.
the first documented case of vibing
Somehow, this feels like an appropriate way to start my day.

Current mood on opening Twitter: portrait #1.
Just because he died in 1802 doesn鈥檛 mean this guy was not extremely online.
LMAO I love this. 馃榿

Joseph "Fingerguns" Ducreux, as he was known in his time.
Were these the first memes on record??

The fact that a man born in the 1700s painted the bottom left portrait really makes my day, people have been laughing to weird shit forever
a looong time ago I got to see the 2nd one in person, and I had to pose with it pic.twitter.com/UbhsF3Oq0x
How did I never know of these awesome paintings and this guy?

Employed as a court painter by Louis XVI, when the revolution got rough he made Louis鈥 final pre-guillotine portrait and scrammed to London. Two of his daughters became painters as well.

Clearly a man out of his time. He really needed a phone with a selfie stick attachment .
In reply to @41Strange
Pretty sure that's Michael Sheen

In Germany, the third one is a meme, saying: "Ich lache 眉ber Dein simples Weltbild.", which is translated: "I'm laughing about your simple (naive) worldview."
If I ever win the lottery and have a house with a library (complete with drinks globe and secret passage obviously) this dude and portraits of my mates doing similar are adorning the walls 馃槀

Ducreux would probably be really happy that one of his pictures went on to become a foundational meme for the 21st century
Yall taught us about van Gogh and Picasso and hid this absolute LEGEND. smh
Bis heute setzt er die Standards f眉r YouTube Thumbnails.
And I'm sure he could imagine no greater honor than how his work has been embraced by internet absurdist culture.
These are real?! 馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ, Joe was WYLIN

The 4 stages of a night out.

These are memes, he painted memes in the 1700s
I will forever love how this dude was creating memes before memes were a thing that anyone had conceived of. If he was here now he鈥檇 be KILLING it on TikTok and shit.
In reply to @41Strange
This guy was livin in year 3030 while actually in 1790!!!
Proof that the finger guns pose goes back at least as far as the 18th century.
I miss all of the Joseph Ducreux memes from Tumblr.
In reply to @41Strange
See, I knew you could do it. No gargantuan bat-Draculas, no creepy cockroaches...this goofy shambolic art is perfectly appropriate 1:20 a.m. content. Thank you.

Y vosotros que cre铆ais que poner duck face en los selfies era lo m谩s鈥 :P
In reply to @41Strange
This guy was arguably the coolest guy of the 1700鈥檚, and he鈥檇 probably be tickled to know his pictures are a part of internet culture. Joseph should be considered the first image meme artist.
Can鈥檛 help but smile and these also made me think of Rik Mayall 馃檪
This guy invented reaction images.
This guy immediately goes into my top 5 painters. Hey @mfaboston get an exhibit and I鈥檓 there.
In reply to @41Strange
If only he could see what the twenty-first century has done with his work.
I feel like I could meme the **** out of these
T铆pico millennial narcisista obsesionado con los selfies.
In reply to @41Strange
Had no idea this guy was a portraitist for King Louis XVI. And even drew the King's last portrait before his execution.
This is also every photo of my cat
He invented memes
The OG of bullshit selfies lol
