Humorous Photos of Santa Claus Invading Famous Works of Art

Photographer Ed Wheeler has spent the past 25 years taking self-portraits dressed as Santa Claus. If that weren’t quirky enough, the artist has amusingly inserted his jolly image into famous works of art — which we first spotted on Honestly WTF. If you’ve ever wanted to see Santa lounging in the jungle of Rousseau’s The Dream, sunning himself in De Chirico’s The Soothsayer’s Recompense, and enjoying lunch in the grass with Manet’s subjects, then pay Wheeler’s artworks a visit in our gallery. The Santa Classics will be on display in Philadelphia until December 21, and cards featuring the whimsical images are available at the Philadelphia Museum of Art shop and online store.
