Los Angeles’ Getty Museum has issued an artistic challenge to its social media followers, and the results are equal parts clever and hilarious.
Last week, the museum encouraged art fans on its Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts to re-create their favourite artwork using three objects laying around their house.
And boy did they deliver, from recreating Jeff Koons’ work using a pile of socks to restaging Jaques-Louis David with a blanket and duct tape (and of course incorporating their precious supply of toilet paper).
