More Celebrities Re-Imagined as Classic Paintings

Jack Nicholson

Expert Photoshoppers over at Worth1000 continue to re-imagine classic paintings with celebrities as the models. The skilled photo manipulators have been expanding the site's Modern Renaissance collection with their creative additions, transforming the likes of superstars like Julia Roberts and Jack Nicholson into painted people from centuries past.

The cleverly humorous amalgamations disregard any notion of time or aging as they spotlight these present-day celebrities as classically painted portraits. They take famed actors off the big screen, legendary athletes off the courts, and iconic musicians off the stage and, instead, throw their images onto canvases. Some of these “paintings” are so well doctored and incredibly believable, it's hard to tell that a celebrity's face has just been edited in.
