Denmark-based designer Olivia Muus has created a fun series of classical art selfies.

Muus takes the original art of portraiture and combines it with its modern counterpart, the selfie. With a cleverly positioned hand and smartphone, it looks like the subjects of these old-world paintings are getting into the social media craze themselves.

It's always fun to mix the new with the old; the past with the present. This project is an easy way to associate two different worlds, ensuring that you have the best of both. You can appreciate fine art and enjoy taking the occasional selfie, after all. Who says the two are mutually exclusive? Better yet, the next time you're visiting a museum, try creating your own fine art selfie.
