New Classical Paintings Reimagined as Part of Modern-Day Italian Life by Alexey Kondakov

For his latest works in the ongoing series Art History in Contemporary Life, Ukranian artist and designer Alexey Kondakov (previously here and here) has staged classical paintings in scenes from modern day Naples, Italy. The figures effortless merge with their present day surroundings, two women looking perfectly bored flipping through comic books in the back of a dusty book store, while a different woman takes a nap beside a latte and half-eaten sandwich. You can view more of his digitally altered scenes on his Instagram and Facebook page. (via My Modern Met)
