Photos of Museum Paintings Taking Selfies

Museum of Selfies is a fun art project started by Olivia Muus that shows people in portrait paintings about to take a selfie. Muus explains:

“This is a project that started when my friend aka. right hand and I went to the National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen. I took a picture for fun and liked how this simple thing could change their character and give their facial expression a whole new meaning.”

Muus has since started a tumblr page where others can submit their own #museumofselfies. Below are my personal favourites to date.
