Modern Day Masters Collection

To copy someone is considered to be the highest form of flattery, and here at overstockArt we would like to flatter some of the biggest modern-day celebrities. What better way to do that, than incorporate them into beloved masterpieces from history’s best painters. We tried to create pieces that are both humorous and top quality, so that you can feel confident showcasing them in your home or office.

The first name that comes to mind when thinking of those that are influential in the current world culture is the Presidential family. That is why we chose to feature President Donald Trump, the First Lady and his oldest daughter in so many of our most popular paintings. The Trumps are internationally known and invoke strong emotions from most people. Whether it is in support or opposition, the Trump family is recognizable enough to enhance a piece from some of the most beloved artists. This creates a piece that will have an impact on your space.

Although the world of politics has many famous figures in it, we felt that the former leader of our nation also deserved to be cast into some famous works as well. We tried to choose pieces that were recognizable, but fit with both his personality and that of his wife. The former First Lady has become a radiant role model on her own and we felt she would shine in her own portrait pieces. For a less controversial statement that still leaves and impression choose one of their enigmatic paintings.

If you would rather avoid politics and celebrate something more eternal, then perhaps The Kiss featuring the royal couple would delight you. We have placed Prince Harry and his bride Meghan Markel in the place of the infamous couple painted by Gustav Klimt. One of the most romantic paintings in history capturing the wedding of the century. The gold glint of the foil and the energy of the symbols remind you of the classic but our artist’s capture these two in intricate detail. Allowing you to express your own romantic nature at home.

Take the time to browse through our Modern Day Masters gallery, but be sure to check back often as we plan to continue to add new pieces. We hope to add something unique and special to each art collection. Any one of these interesting masterpieces with a satirical twist could become your next conversation piece.
