The first eyeglasses were invented and made in Italy around 1280, and while their popularity grew, the first artwork that depicts sunglasses appeared only in 1352. It was a portrait of Cardinal Hugo of Provence at his writing desk, painted by Italian master Tomaso de Mondena.
The reason why eyeglasses were very rarely used in portraits was that on the design side they were quite bulky and ugly. It was not til the 19th century that eyeglasses became stylish, modern, and popular so much that people liked to be photographed and painted with them.
Let us show how famous paintings would look if characters there were depicted with eyeglasses (modern or antique). Please note that we focus on eyeglasses with lenses, not sunglasses. Please refer to the themepost example by Mundo.
The Isleworth Mona Lisa was done by Da Vinci about a decade earlier than his famous Mona Lisa, so Leonardo painted the same woman twice in his life. "Isleworth Mona" has been the focus of a 35 years of research, which has been summarized in a 320-page book published by The Mona Lisa Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Zurich, Switzerland. Listing historical and archival records, scientific and experimental data, the book aims to support the theory that the painting is the original portrait of Lisa Gherardini del Giocondo, while the Louvre masterpiece is a later version, completed in Rome around 1516 at the encouragement of Lorenzo de' Medici's brother Giuliano. The authenticity of Isleworth Mona Lisa is disputed by many art experts, however. "Rather than an unfinished work by Leonardo, "Isleworth Mona" looks like a cheap fake version of Mona Lisa with makeup and plastic surgery", one blogger said.
In this contest you are asked to do plastic surgery on famous works of
art - paintings, drawings and sculptures - and give characters plastic
surgeries and makeup. E.g. collagen shots, botox injections, hair transplants, nose jobs, face
lifts, and brea$t jobs. Please keep your entries Safe For Work (if you are working with nude sources, put some bikinis on them, etc).

Today, December 1, is the official end of autumn and the beginning of winter. Are you looking forward to lots of snow this season?
To mark the start of winter, let's "winterize" any famous paintings by adding snow to them and adding warm winter clothes to the characters in the paintings. Adding snow is a must, adding winter clothes is optional.

A superhero is a type of hero character that protects the public with his/her extraordinary talents and supernatural powers. Each superhero wears a very distinct costume. American comic books of the 1930s popularized the first superheroes, but superhero prototypes pretty much existed since centuries ago - from demigods like Heracles to heroes such as Perseus and folklore characters like Robin Hood.
Photoshop any characters in old paintings dressed up as any modern superheroes. Here's an extensive list of all known superheroes for your reference.

On May 20, 140 years ago during the Gold Rush years, Levi Strauss designed and made blue trousers from strong sailcloth with pockets strengthened by copper rivets. He called them
"jeans" and designed them for miners who were complaining that their cotton trousers were tearing too easy.
Miners liked the jeans so much that Strauss immediately founded the first company to manufacture the jeans. This is how blue jeans were born as we know them.
To celebrate the 140th birthday of the blue jeans, add jeans to any works of art (paintings, drawings, statues, etc.) one way or another. You can also use other clothing (skirts, jackets, hats, etc.) made from denim. Let's show that jeans were popular through all the history of mankind.
