List Criteria: Critically and publicly acclaimed paintings that are, frankly, just not that great...

This is a list of the most overrated paintings ever created, ranked from most overrated to least overrated. These are the works of art that have been acclaimed despite not being all that great. Because this is a crowdranked list, Ranker visitors can make their own lists and vote on the artwork to help decide where individual paintings belong on the list. Remember, voting up a certain painting means that you think it is overrated, and belongs on the list. Voting against means you like it and don't think that it is all that overrated.
