Photos Of Pop Culture Icons Hilariously Added Into Historical Paintings

Miley Cyrus, A Spanish beauty, by Henri-Guillaume Schlesinger.

French graphic artist Bénédicte Lacroix has created a funny Tumblr blog titled Voyages dans le temps, which translates to ‘time travel’.

Her blog is filled with images of celebrities who have been inserted into famous historical paintings, bringing us back in time to imagine how these celebrities would have their portraits painted in an era when there was no photography.

Her comical mashup includes actors, pop culture characters, and celebrities. For instance, Leonardo Dicaprio was featured in Vincent Van Gogh famous self-portrait.

Head over here to see more of these mashups.
