Classical Paintings Are Getting A Geeky Makeover And It’s Better Than The Original

“The Swing” By Jean-Honore Fragonard

Classical art is beautiful to look at, but some of us have a hard time relating to it. A digital artist on Tumblr named Lothlenan is changing that by turning some of fine art’s most timeless pieces into geeky fantasy settings.

“Woman With A Parasol” By Claude Monet

So far, they’ve revamped 7 tableaux, inspired by fandoms like Sailor Moon, Adventure Time, and The Legend of Zelda. It’s amazing how century-old paintings take on such a modern feel when combined with elements of Anime!

“The Accolade” By Edmund Leighton

If you’re a geek extraordinaire and can’t even deal with how flipping cool these paintings are, you’re in luck – Lothlenon currently operates a Redbubble store where they sell stunning prints of each design. Who wouldn’t want an impressionist Totoro-à-la-Monet on their wall?

“A Portrait Of Louis Xiv” By Hyacinthe Rigaud

The Scream (of Nature) By Edvard Munch

“Lovers On A Swing” By Pierre Auguste

“Self Portrait With Her Daughter” By Madame Le Brun
