Ever wondered what would have happened had Homer Simpson had his portrait painted by Rembrandt? Or Marge by Vermeer?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well, now you know.

Or wondered at the true story behind this iconic painting? I love this one, because I’ve always found the pitchfork in the original picture to be a bit threatening. (Probably because I’m a city girl and the only pitchforks I see are used by mobs in movies.)

Go take a look at David Barton’s website, Limpfish, to see more awesome meshes of pop culture and high art.
