Paul Getty Museum, located in Los Angeles. It tweeted earlier on March 25 asking the internet users to post pictures of the original artwork alongside their recreated work. The rules required an individual to pick their favourite art and utilize props lying around in the homes and click pictures. The museum shared a few photos to give the internet an idea.
