Artist Reimagines Celebrities as The Subjects of Classical Paintings

From the elegance of their clothes to the stiffness of their poses, it can be hard to relate to portraits from the 17th or 18th century. The art project by french artist Kyès seems to turn this around by inserting contemporary celebrities into classical paintings. With the help of almighty Photoshop, Kyès helps us picture what our favorite actors and musicians would have looked like if they had posed for a painter centuries ago, with a sensible outfit for the era. The attention to detail is exceptional. Scroll down to see the best examples!

  1. These are gorgeous. I love stuff like this. I wonder how they choose which celeb to use and which paintings to edit.
