Portraits of Famous Philosophers Painted in the Style of Famous Artists

The Internet is loaded with mashup art, but we rarely see anyone joining pop culture, art, and philosophy the way Renée Jorgensen Bolinger does. The philosophy graduate student at the University of Southern California created a series of portraits, using philosophers like Ludwig Wittgenstein, Immanuel Kant, and Philippa Foot as her subjects. She paints them in the style of like-minded artists — equally famous figures such as Mondrian, Picasso, and Toulouse-Lautrec. See more of Bolinger’s clever series past the break, and visit her shop to purchase prints.

“The self is a relation which relates itself to its own self… ”
