Photographer Erwin Olaf pays tribute to iconic artists Jean-Michel Basquiat, Karel Appel, and Jackson Pollock in "Les Beaux Arts", his latest fashion feature for the March issue of Vogue Netherlands.

With its recent influence on Paris fashion, modern art is a relevant topic that is making waves on and off the runway. For this conceptual beauty editorial, Erwin Olaf worked alongside visionary makeup artist Topolino, who created models' artist inspired makeup looks.

Top models Elza Luijendijk, Ronja Amanda Berg, and Lieke van Houten posed for the artful image series that references Pollack's splattered strokes, Basquiat's signature locks and Appel's vivid color scheme.

An homage, to art, this Vogue Netherlands image series celebrates some of the world's most respected talents while showcasing the season's hottest hues. Stats for Artist Homage Beauty Editorials Trending: Older & Average
