Bouguereau Remastered

Sometimes in my voyages across the Internet in search of new stuff for the blog, I come across something fun.  This was just such a discovery.  On the site Bouguereau Remastered, assorted artists create variations on famous William-Adolphe Bouguereau works, usually with some satirical bent. Bouguereau, of course, frequently painted children (often his own), and so there are plenty of examples of these works represented at Bouguereau Remastered; I chose those I felt were the best.

Among my favorite pieces at BR were the assorted versions of L’amour moille:


Artist Unknown – Celestial Bodies

Artist Unknown - Bouguereau's Tattoo Show

This is cool. Digital artist Cézar Brandão has created a 3D rendering of the figure from L’amour moille:

Ron English, who is famous for his satirical paintings using KISS figures, did a take on Alma Parens:
