When Great Art Makes You LOL by Hyperallergic

The article from Hyperallergic made me think of some humorous art pieces.
Many artworks came to my mind, but I would like introduce this particular Northern Renaissance artist’s satirical piece:

The Flatterers by Pieter Brueghel the Younger, 1592.

Just like his father Pieter the Elder Bruegel, it seems Pieter the Younger depicted Flemish proverbs in his work. The inscription says, “because so much money passes trough my purse, therefore I am always surrounded by flatterers 1592.”
