I’m A Barbie Girl, In the Art Wooorrld.


It’s fantastic! Life as a classic!

[Excerpt from Art News Worldwide, ( http://www.artnewsworldwide.com/flavorwire-art-news/27066-fine-art-barbies-dress-up-like-famous-paintings.html )]

Barbie is one girl that’s really done it all – she’s had every job in the book and then some. She’s even been Lady Gaga. But can she pull off being a painting? Fine Art Barbies, a new line from Mattel that was recently unveiled at this year’s Toy Fair, has translated three of the most iconic paintings of all time into, well, Barbies. We don’t know about you, but we don’t really think the famous Mona Lisa smile translates very well into plastic, though we can’t say we don’t dig the hair on the Klimt. Works of art or tasteless mockeries of the real thing? Let us know what you think in the comments!

"Starry Night" by Vincent Van Gogh, (1889)

da Vinci's "Mona Lisa",(1503-1506)

"Adele Bloch-Bauer's Portrait", Gustav Klimit, (1907)
