Self-portrait paintings of famous artists depicted as selfies in Samsung ad

When they said, ‘history repeats itself’, we didn’t think they meant selfies. In this witty marketing campaign by Samsung and ad agency Leo Burnett Switzerland, the iconic self-portraits of famous artists are reimagined as selfies. The images show Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, and Albrecht Durer, all taking a selfie with Samsung’s NX mini camera, with the LCD screen revealing their own paintings as the photos.

Goes to show that everyone loves being a bit vain – even people from many, many years ago. Only difference is, they had no duck face back then!
