Bangkok-based artist Thunyamon Charoensuttikul recently put together a series that depicts the Disney princesses as Renaissance characters. The Disney princesses have undergone a number of different transformations over the years, however this series represents the first time that the heroines have been depicted as works of Renaissance art.

The 'Disney Princesses in Renaissance' series consists of 10 portraits, each of which is inspired by the artistic style that was popular during the Renaissance period. This includes a strong contrast between light and dark, which gives each portrait a striking look. The images are also finished with blurred and softened edges, which is a technique popularized by Leonardo da Vinci during the period.

The artistic series ultimately offers a unique take on the iconic Disney princesses by turning them into regal Renaissance characters.
