This Husband Hired 23 Artists To Make The Perfect Birthday Present For His Wife

In this story, Ernst Berlin didn’t create a work of art, but he commissioned 23 artists to create a beautiful collection of art for his wife Agnes in what is probably the sweetest and most awesome birthday present we’ve ever seen.

The 23 artists, whom he found through Reddit Gets Drawn, were provided with 40 photos of Agnes, Ernst and their 8-month-old child and asked to interpret them through their own artistic style. The result was a series as diverse in its artistic interpretation is it was unified in its warm and loving approach towards the photos.

If you think the artistic gift is awesome, wait until you see Agnes’ reaction! Ernst created a video of the unveiling from a hidden camera, and you can watch this video at the bottom of our post.

I agree. The facial expressions got lost in most of the art. It's a sweet gesture nonetheless.

Oh that's what I was missing in my thoughtfulness: a crapton of money.

Money doesn't diminish the thoughtfulness. It just outlines the thoughtfulness for the superficial.
