photoshopped women in paintings

Italian artist Anna Utopia Giordano took a Photoshop scalpel to 12 famous nude Venuses to see what art history class would’ve been like “if the aesthetic standard of our society had belonged to the collective unconscious of the great artists of the past.”

They remind me of the before and after adds in magazines, in which 20 pounds suddenly melt away. I wonder which one you prefer. The 21st century eye tends to choose the slim version.


Alessandro Botticelli, The Birth of Venus


William-Aldolphe Bouguereau, The Birth of Venus


Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, Venus Anadyomene


Angelo Bronzino, Venus, Cupid, Folly, and Time
