UK artist Steve Payne has been brilliantly photoshopping celebrities, friends, and family into 19th century paintings of Russian generals over at Replaceface. The original paintings are sourced from a series of 329 portraits of Russian generals created after the Napoleonic War by English painter George Dawe.
George Dawe was an English portrait artist who painted 329 portraits of Russian generals active during Napoleon’s invasion of Russia for the Military Gallery of the Winter Palace, Saint Petersburg, Russia.
I’m using digital copies of these paintings as a basis for my own work which involves incorporating my friends, family and even some celebrities into the paintings using photoshop.
