Brush Up on Your Album Art History With These Clever Mashups

Old masters, new releases

We’ve seen famous album covers with cats, famous album covers recreated by neonate girls, famous album covers with superheroes, and famous album covers interpreted in crumpled socks, but here’s the latest addition to the cover-reimagining cannon: Classic paintings. Genius Instagram account Album+Art (@albumplusart) is the work of  illustrator Eisen Bernard Bernardo, who melds recent and iconic record covers into works of classical painting.

Up next: Alison Goldfrapp as a Cézanne? The new New Order wedged into a Mondrian? See all of Bernardo’s gallery-worthy mashups here (he’s a big fan of Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, and Lana Del Rey), or check out a few of our favorites below. (h/t Noisey)
