Quarantined people are enlisting their pets in the still-trending social media challenge to recreate art masterpeices with everyday objects (and household members) at home.

As the weeks are drawing into months of stay-at-home orders, people are finding plenty of ways to stage their animal companions in hilarious artwork enactments.

Sparking this creativity was the #GettyChallenge from the Getty in Los Angeles, joining other museum initiatives by Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam,the Figge Art Museum and more. Fuel for the #artchallenge came from a Dutch Instagram account called Tussen Kunst & Quarantaine and #tussenkunstenquarantine and #betweenartandquarantine, along with a Russian Facebook group.

This global effort offers hours of very entertaining content to browse. Be warned, for some things you can not un-see. For example, you may now forever associate Ingres' Grande Odalisque with a doe-eyed yellow labrador (scroll down).
