20 Reinterpreted Renaissance Paintings

As everyone knows, the iconic paintings of well-known Renaissance Masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Alessandro Botticelli and Michelangelo are often recreated in ways that these Old Masters could never have imagined.

From these great works of art, da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’ is, without a doubt, the most celebrated art piece in the world; our wide selection of Mona Lisa art on TrendHunter.com reflects the piece’s popularity.

In spite of the overabundance of this great work art in the slideshow below, every piece of subverted Mona Lisa featured has different twists and tones. For example, when was the last time you saw a portable toilet decorated with ‘La Gioconda’? Or masterfully embedded into Swarovski crystal curtains? Or made out of 12,000 sticky Post-It notes?

Alessandro Botticelli, Rembrandt, Rubens, Emile Vernon, and Raffaello are some of the Old Masters whose paintings have received a most impious makeover in the slideshow below.
