The 'Carter Family Portrait Gallery' is a Tumblr blog devoted to adding the faces of Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Blue Ivy to classical paintings. The humorous Tumblr is presented as if these moments were "captured by their official portrait artist."

The Carters are presented like royalty and it is no surprise that Beyoncé takes the place of some of the most iconic depictions of females in art history, like Botticelli's Venus, Mona Lisa and Frida Kahlo -- without the unibrow, of course.

The Carters are shown meeting with other celebrity couples like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West and the adorable faces of North West and Blue Ivy are painted onto pensive little cherubic angels. The creator of this hilarious blog has even taken the care to add realistic textures to the canvases, making these faux-family portraits more realistic.
