The Worth1000 Modern Renaissance photo manipulation contest has resulted in a slew of classically painted portraits of today's biggest celebrities. From Leonard DiCaprio starring in Van Gogh’s last self-portrait to Angelina Jolie as Rogier van der Weyden’s Portrait of a Lady, the execution is quite remarkable. People certainly pulled all the stops when it came to participating.

With 63 entries in total, the Worth1000 Modern Renaissance photo manipulation contest also got quite the response. While it is undeniable some are better than others, it is interesting to see all the different takes on what 'classical art' means to them. Not to mention the more humorous interpretations of the term 'celebrity' as Honey Boo Boo's mama also makes an appearance among the ranks of Sean Connery and Penelope Cruz.
