This Twitter account turns tabloids into art

Jul 12, 2017

Caravaggio and Britney Spears come together on our new favourite Twitter account.

It’s not always easy to fuse high culture and pop culture together. There are exceptions, like Accidental Renaissance, but sometimes the combination leads to some kind of Frankenstein monster that no one wants to look at. That’s why it’s important to celebrate it when someone succeeds, and right now no one is doing it better than @TabloidArtHist, a UK account that operates under the assumption that “for every pic of Lindsay Lohan falling, there’s a Bernini sculpture begging to be referenced.”

Here are some of the account’s greatest hits:

Biblical Beyoncé

Britney in her car(avaggio)

Rihanna, ca. 1873
