I love these fabulous barbie recreations of famous old master pieces and other well known artists by French Artist Jocelyn Grivaud, and â€“ being a true dutchy – especially this one where Barbie resembles The Girl with the Pearl Earring by Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer.
Growing up with Barbie and having kept a secret fascination for her elegance and grace, Grivaudâ€™s aim was to adjust the famous Barbie image â€“ too blonde, too skinny, too superficial â€“to different emblematic representations.
Other favourites of mine are Barbie posing as Mona Lisa (Leonardo da Vinci), The Venus The Milo (Alexandro of Antios), Olympia (Edouard Manet) , Silvia (Otto Dix) and Marilyn Monroe (Andy Warhal)
