Historical paintings + modern celebrities = brilliantly funny
French digital artist Bénédicte Lacroix is talented, imaginative, and the curator of our new favorite Tumblr. She runs “Voyages dans le temps,” where she has put together amazing mashups of classic art and modern celebrities. The seamless adaptations are hilarious and beautiful, and we are obsessed.
Most of the work on “Voyages dans le temps” blends real life celebrities with classic paintings, although a few of the clever projects pull from cartoons. And while most of the celebrities fit so perfectly it’s easy to forget they aren’t actually the subject of the original painting, a few are clearly out of place.
Here are some side-by-sides from the blog, and visit Lacroix’s site to see more!
