Example text

Is her blush the afterglow of a hearty laugh, or a mild seduction? Her hair is slightly jostled back as if she is sitting in a wind tunnel. Her male admirer, in a three-quarter turn, slightly cut off by the picture frame, smiles back at her with whitened teeth. There is an uncanny similarity to the smile of the woman in a photograph, El Morocco (1955), by photographer Garry Winogrand. Currin’s portraits of urban young women are also reminiscent of photographs of women by another twentieth-century photographer, Weegee.

I am not suggesting that our responses to an artwork should stop at the utter of our laugh. The laugh is a guttural reminder that we have had a pleasant cognitive shift and this should prompt us to inquire further about why an artwork is humorous in ways that can deepen our understanding of the work.

These artful 34 Art and Laughter jokes rely on their ability to convince us that cheeks can be peachy, noses can be cucumbers, lips can be peas, and ears can be corn.
