Gustave Cour-slay: Famous Artworks Get Campy Selfie Make-Overs

By Sandra Song
Egon Schiele, Self-Portrait with Arm Twisting above Head, 1910.

Over the weekend, Artnet decided to put some classic works of art through a selfie-editing app called Perfect365, and the results are equal parts camp and Selfish-levels of perfection. Making over everyone from Realist pioneer Gustave Courbet (with a pair of colored contacts and some gloss -- though his blush has stayed put) to a cinema colorization of Cindy Sherman's famous untitled film still. Other notable alterations include some purple shadow on Jan van Eyck, eyeliner on Frida Kahlo and a fabulous blow-out for Vincent Van Gogh. Check out a few of our favorites below.
