Photoshopping French Classic Paintings Into Modern Celebrity Shots

The French Neoclassic art movement may sound a little bit too academic for someone passionate about modern art. As many artists are getting used to digital art, oil paint could sound not only old, but extremely difficult to use.

Thanks to a Worth1000 Photoshop contest, the works of French classics Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres and Jacques-Louis David were transformed into modern celebrity shots featuring portraits of Snoop Dogg, Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt by passionate Photoshop masters. I may not be a Napoleon fan, but Snoop Dogg sure looks imperial to me in that painting.
