Jolie, Portman, Johansson, Roberts, Elvis, Nicholson, Kidman, Cruise Become Art Masterpieces
These works of art have been digitally retouched and given the Hollywood style makeover with mega stars such as Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts, Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie, Elvis Pressley and others featured in famous portraits by very famous painters.Thus Natalie Portman is portrayed as Raffaello's Madonna of Granduca, while Angelina Jolie is captured as Renaissance painter's Emile Vernon's Among the Blossoms. Elvis meanwhile is featured as Paul Lemoyne in this portrait by Jean Augustine while Julia Roberts is Sophie Anderson's Young Girl Fixing her Hair. Scarlett Johannson is the face of The Lady in Blue although I fail to see the facial resemblance. There is also Tom Cruise as the Pelt Merchant of Cairo, Jack Nicholson in an Edward Hooper painting and Nicole Kidman in a Reubens portrait.
