I just happened across this series entitled After Master by Yin Xin. By far my faourite is the Birth of Venus. Yin has taken classic master paintings and replaced their Western subjects with Chinese ones. LOVES IT. 

  • Top is Birth of Venus by Boticelli.
  • Dejeuner Sur L’Herbe by Manet.
  • Venus and the Lute Player by Titian
  • Mona Lisa by Da Vinci

Contemporary Art Week!
