A new art history inspired Tumblr entered the universe yesterday, courtesy of f Tumblr veteranCecilia Azcarate. Ikea b4-16 finds classic Ikea items in paintings made before 1650 and most of the results are surprisingly spot-on.
With art history’s iconic holy moments happening frequently in the home, it’s no wonder Azcarate found so much material to work with. Her Tumblr is a great exercise in looking past the divine action in the foreground to take in the exquisite detail in these Northern works. Our only criticism is that we wish she had identified all of the works she used as source material, in addition to linking to the Ikea furniture.
