In the late 1780’s unorthodox French artist Joseph Ducreux painted a portrait of himself pointing towards the viewer with a smug “I fucked your girlfriend” type of grin. Whilst the portrait itself hangs in the Louvre, the image has certainly done the rounds on the Internet. In late 2009, it gave rise to a popular meme where an “archaic reinterpretation” of popular rap lyrics were superimposed over the artwork. And it has resulted in great lulz.
