The “Accidental Renaissance” title comes from an image from New Year 2016, which saw a series of late-night revellers laying on the streets of Manchester in poses resemblant of renaissance-era paintings.

It’s not all images of doom and gloom, though - Redditors have included Accidental Renaissance highlights such as “Pizza Night With The Woofers”, “The Lost Supper”, and “Cricket in Kashmir” amongst many others.
