Beyonce and Jay-Z

In a clash of culture, The Carter Family Portraits replaces famous artworks with famous people, specifically Beyonce and Jay-Z. The two are seen in iconic paintings like Grant Wood’s American Gothic or Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer. The Tumblr gallery has a lot more to offer and extends to both classical and more contemporary works, which seems to say that the celebrity of Jay and Bey transcend all time.

The Photoshopped images are of varying quality (some look flawless while others need more work), with a general knowledge of art history represented (no deep cuts here). But, aside from this, when they “work,” these images are an amusing look at the combination of celebrities, the different forms that it takes, and what the mixture of high vs. low culture looks like.  (Via It’s Nice That)

    Okay, I’ll bite. Why? Why is this lame, poorly ‘shopped wackness worthy of engaging pixels?
