The Art of What Not to Do: 7 New Year’s Resolutions Gone Wrong

The longest year in history is finally over, and now it’s time for a fresh start. And that means New Year’s resolutions: We all make them, and we usually break them. Hey, we didn’t really mean we’d learn a new language or go skydiving—that was the champagne talking.

But the men and women in the following works of art (many of whom you’ll see on our fun scavenger hunts)? They stuck to their resolutions…even when they shouldn’t have. Some made it weird, and some are just off. Sorry, guys, but you’re doing it wrong!


1. Athena of Velletri, Kresilias, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (See our scavenger hunts in the L.A. area.)


2. Ugolino and His Sons, Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux,Metropolitan Museum of Art (Check out our scavenger hunts in New York City)


3. Christ’s Descent into Hell, the Met


4. Saint Augustine, Philippe de Champaigne, LACMA
