Modern Renaissance: Celebrities in Old Art

In a contest entitled “Modern Renaissance” by Worth1000, a community of photo manipulation artist, participants put faces of celebrities such as actors and football players into old renaissance paintings, often famous ones. Although I’m not a big fan of either celebrity pictures or photo manipulation, this is something I was a bit amused to discover.

Below are some of the winning entries decided by user votes.

  2. I agree, 10th place looks nothing like Kate Winslet but Keira Knightly instead. 20th place does not look like Scarlett Johansson either. Can't pinpoint exactly which actress that face reminds me of though. The best one IMO is #2 with Penelope. It looks well blended and without the photo shine that all the rest give.
