Every painting tells a story. Every fairytale tells a story of a life that we have not seen or heard of, or something similar we are about to face. Art is not just for art critics, artists, and for those who work in that sphere, but also for everyone who has the talent of understanding the picture or story it tries to tell us.
Disney has been an art of its own since day one. It’s loved by many people with no age limit. It’s like the best relief that transports us to a fantasy/fairytale world from the struggles, difficulties, problems and distress we face in reality. They have been having a fan base of all generations since the very beginning. Illustrator and Graphic Designer Carlos Gromo help us remember that by creating a series of Disney princesses as the subjects of famous paintings, and the outcome was pure genius.
Based on: John William Waterhouse – The Soul of the Rose (1908)
Carlos is a Spanish Artist that runs an Instagram page to share samples of his work to his audience and fans. Gromo understood the need to share a series of these paintings so that people would memorize them better., since history/Renaissance seem to have been forgotten by the majority of the people.
Based on: Lawrence Alma Tadema – The Favourite Poet (1888)
These Disney characters are something we all love and continue to feel that way about it. Gromo is a talented artist who thinks outside the box when it comes to creating masterpieces. His pieces are primarily Disney-inspired but also create reimagined versions of popular characters we very well know and love.
Based on: John William Waterhouse – Sketch of Circe “the Sorceress” (1911)
Here are some more of those pictures that were reimagined as historic drawings and paintings.
