Where’s Waldo in Art History?

I LOL’ed when I read about this tumblelog on my favorite art blogazine,Hyperallergic.

Fans of the Where’s Waldo books can test their art history prowess by searching for the beloved red- and white-striped character camouflaged among various masterpieces at Vintage Waldo.

Waldo’s peripatetic time travels span Italy’s Renaissance, where he makes a cameo in Michelangelo’s The Last Judgment; 1909 France, where he appears in Matisse’s The Dance; and in 1960s New York, where he turns up in Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Prints. Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks and Edvard Munch’s The Scream are also very funny.
