Meta satire in Jean-Philippe Delhomme's 'Artists' Instagrams'

In this meta take on artist representation, French illustrator, painter and writer Jean-Philippe Delhomme presents the reader with a suite of 85 tongue-in-cheek line drawings hypothesizing how some of the world's great artists whose death predated social media—including Louise Bourgeois, Frida Kahlo, Mark Rothko, Gertrude Stein, Joseph Beuys and Andy Warhol—would have interacted on Instagram today. A crude, hand-drawn "post" by Vincent van Gogh shows an old woman pointing at a plein air masterpiece clamped into a French easel with the caption, “old crazy woman said my painting will become a handbag and people will make tons of money with it." Thirteen "likes" are registered, as well as a response from @gauguin reading, "ha ha ha." This bright yellow volume of facetious, hand-drawn black-and-white Instagram posts is compact, functional and filled with enough satire to satisfy everyone from the art historian to the Instagram influencer. In the featured image, Duchamp’s female alter ego, Rrose Sélavy, has posted a photo of the artist’s infamous urinal piece captioned to imbue the banality of a typical Monday.
