Kim Kardashian’s Selfies Get Turned into Works of Art in Hilarious New Tumblr

If you ask Kanye West, he would probably agree that Kim Kardashian is a work of art that should be revered and gazed upon by people all over the world. That said, we think Yeezy would very much approve of this tumblr, Kim at the Museum (created by the Sid Lee creative agency), which sets images from Ms. Kardashian West’s Selfish book against pieces at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a hilarious clash of highbrow art and pop culture.

Kim Kardashian’s likeness in historic works of art like Andrea Solario’s Salome with the Head of Saint John the Baptist, Francesco Granacci’s Madonna and Child, Gustave Courbet’s Woman with a Parrot and more elevates each work to levels they have never achieved. Because really – what could make a well-maintained 15th-century painting more relevant than an image of Kim Kardashian’s nipples poking through a wet white T-shirt?
