barbie tributes famous works of art . . .wtf

Andy Warhol

Man Ray

Leonardo Da Vinci

Otto Dix

Pablo Picasso

Venus de Milo

Johannes Vermeer

Barbie is now everyone from Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring to Warhol’s Marilyn thanks to French artist, Jocelyne Grivaud, who creates Barbie doll versions of famous works of art.

"My creations are inspired by famous works I have been moved by. The idea was to design transformations of Barbie and have fun at the same time. It is a way of making comparisons between different representations of women, created at different times, and Barbie, a figure with a firm hold on our imaginations."

Is Barbie really the most ideal figure we have in today's modern society, to be compared to these monumental works of feminine art? hmmm . . .wtf? Our ideals of woman have become convoluted, and more disfigured than any Picasso portrait.
