The New Danish Royal Family’s Portrait Is The Scariest Thing Ever

Pin it


This portrait of the Danish royal family was painted by Thomas Kluge, whose art is referred to as “a kind of magic realism.” That’s funny because we were going to go with Thomas Kinkead, painter of light, mixed with Damien from The Omen. It was presented as a gift for the Royal Family by a “private man who wishes to remain anonymous”  in celebration of the “150th anniversary of the accession to the Danish throne by the House of Glücksburg.” While not the official portrait of the family, it will still be housed in the Royal Family’s collection.

In actuality it’s like The Orphan if it was painted by the guy who did the original Indiana Jones movie posters.

No thank you.
