Even though these classical art pieces had an original intent to capture daily life experiences of that time period, meme culture has brought them back to today's audiences by giving them new meaning.

There is no better way to introduce our younger generations to classical art than making memes out of them. Creating captions for classical paintings that correlate to modern-day topics and current social issues is what the "Art Memes Central" Instagram page does the best.

Through these hilarious and on-point captions fitted to the paintings, this account has already gained 439K followers, and their popularity is on the rise.

So, without further ado, we invite you to explore these painfully accurate memes and tell us which was your favorite in the comments below.

Why worship something you can see when you can worship some invisible voice in the sky that tells people to sacrifice their children to them? (Okay at least once lol)

The only reason I like English: we don't gender f*****g inanimate objects. (I'm learning German and I want to throw my phone out of the window because a church and library are female, but somehow we still ended up with sexism)

He often drank their blood as well. This is where the tale of Dracula came from.
