Cindy Sherman has taken about thirty years of selfies. Above, she staged her self-portrait to look like Caravaggio’s Bacchus from 1593-94, shown below. A recent study said Caravaggio looked like he had malaria at the time he painted the self-portrait, maybe some sort of liver disease. Ugh, Caravaggio, you’re my favorite artist, but gross. I am impressed by those muscles though, on both artists.
