Doll-sized recreations of iconic works of art

March 5th, 2012

A sense of irony and playfulness are prerequisites of modern art and artist Jocelyne Grivaud certainly has them on display in her doll-sized recreations of iconic works of art.

Inspired by her childhood memories of playing with plastic dolls, Jocelyne has recreated famous paintings such as Leonardo Da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’ and Vermeer’s ‘Girl with the Pearl Earring’ featuring none other than Barbie as her model.

Among other artists subjected to the Barbie treatment are Andy Warhol, Rene Magritte and Pablo Picasso.  Barbie is also reproduced as the Venus de Milo and the Statue of Liberty.

You can see Jocelyne’s work at her website entitled barbiemamuse.
