An original meme

I was flipping through my France pictures the other day and I completely forgot that I found the original painting of an antiquated internet meme while I was wandering through the Louvre. I must’ve had quite the laugh since I took a photo of it and not of many other great pieces in the museum. For those curious, this is a self portrait of Joseph Ducreux and is titled “Portrait de l’artiste sous les traits d’un moqueur”. As you can tell, he was renowned for the wild expressions on his subject’s faces.
