Classic Paintings of Women Photoshopped to Look Like Fashion Models

Western aesthetic traditions did not always demand that women, to be icons of beauty, must fit into size 0 outfits. Past centuries of female nudes in Western art show an acceptance of a few healthy pounds.

Of course, the women depicted in fashion magazines do not always themselves fit into such tiny sizes. They are photoshopped that way, often ridiculously. To mock this tendency, Lauren Wade, a photographic editor, altered eight classic beauties, such as Sandro Botticelli’s Venus pictured above, in the manner of the fashion publishing industry. You can view them all here.

Content warning: artistic nudity (but nothing prurient).
