We aged art’s great portraits with FaceApp – and the result is genuinely disturbing
18 July 2019, 16:11
We took FaceApp’s ageing filter and piled the years on some of the most famous paintings in art history. Just – because.
FaceApp is, frankly. irresistible. The Internet thinks so – just open any social media site right now, and you’ll see what we mean.
Even the great composers joined in (okay, they didn’t have much say in the matter but we had to give the people what they want. You’re welcome.).
Vermeer’s ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’
Aw, we knew Scarlett Johansson would age well! Wait, that’s not right...
Gainsborough’s ‘The Blue Boy’
More like The Nearly-Blue Boy...
Kahlo’s Self Portrait
Monkeys are timeless! Fridas, not so much...
Klimt’s ‘Judith I’
Judith had a hard life after her hangs with Klimt...
Da Vinci’s 'Mona Lisa’
The very *mortal* Lisa.
David’s ‘The Emperor Napoleon in His Study at the Tuileries’
Da Vinci’s ‘Lady with an Ermine’
We mean, it’s a long time to hold a pose. Especially with a cute critter in arm. She looks happy though.
