A pop artist as the subject of fine art recreating fine art, which in subject and theory serves as an allegory for the identity of the pop artist. Art and pop happening at the same damn time. – -
Today, we may have come across our favorite Tumblr blog to date. “The Carter Family Portrait Gallery” features the faces of Beyoncé, Jay Z, Blue Ivy and the family’s famous friends painted onto famous classic works of art (can you spot the Obama cameo?).
As the connoisseur and lover of fine arts he is, or wants to be known as, Jay Z would probably approve. More after the jump LEFT: Artist GRANT WOOD Original painting.

Edvard Munch (Norwegian pronunciation: [ˈmʉŋk]) is a 1974 biographical film about the Norwegian Expressionist painter Edvard Munch, written and directed by Peter Watkins. It was originally created as a three-part miniseries co-produced by the Norwegian and Swedish state television networks NRK and SVT, but subsequently gained an American theatrical release in a three-hour version in 1976. The film covers about thirty years of Munch’s life, focusing on the influences that shaped his art, particularly the prevalence of disease and death in his family and his youthful affair with a married woman. The film was screened at the 1976 Cannes Film Festival, but wasn’t entered into the main competition. – – Info ©ourtesy of Wikipedia
