However it’s the picture hanging on the wall that really caught the attention of everyone, because it appears to be a lovingly drawn scribble of the pair.

The picture was hung right beside a Picasso portrait in the famed museum.

“As we walked the aisles of art from ancient times and contemporary alike, they happened upon a room of Picasso’s art (Marybeth’s favorite),” the man wrote on Reddit.

“My brother and sister in law were able to then hang the painting I had made of himself proposing to Marybeth wearing the red polka dot dress next to a Picasso.

“After I was given the signal, I brought my girlfriend to the painting where she began immediately crying when she realized that the painting was of what was about to take place.

“I bent the knee and she nodded yes as tears traveled down her rosy cheeks.”

But the moment came to a ow hilarious end, after they were greeted by a “less than happy” security guard who told them to remove the painting from the wall.

“After a few more quick photos, the gang left the building and the rest is history or should I say…art history,” he wrote.
