“Be in Love, You Will Be Happy” is a work by the grotesque Paul Gauguin. You can go walk past it while you roll your eyes, scoff, etc., at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

In a letter to van Gogh, he writes,

It’s difficult to give you the feel of it with a drawing. For despite the inscription, the people look sad, in contradiction to the title…I’m going to send it to Paris in a few days. Perhaps it will please people more than my painting.”

Oh Gauguin, you’re TOO MUCH.
