Ugly Babies from Renaissance Paintings That Will Make You Squirm

The Renaissance era is said to be the age of virtuous traditions, however some artists constantly did something that looks rather disturbing today – creepy looking and ugly babies in Renaissance paintings.

Ugly Renaissance Babies is a Tumblr account with a collection of painted kids that look like old men (think Benjamin Button). These babies are so weird, it will make you wonder whether these painters had ever seen a baby at all!
