Going Viral: Beyoncé and Jay-Z in Famous Artwork in ‘The Carter Family Portrait Tumblr’

It’s Beyoncé’s world and we’re just living in it. Really, it’s true. In the latest Tumblr obsession, “The Carter Family Portrait Tumblr,” the Photoshop genius behind the blogging site has injected Queen Bey, hubby Jay-Z, heir to the throne Blue Ivy, and friends into classical works of art. The family is royalty after all!

The Tumblr launched on Sept. 7 and there have already been over a dozen pieces of work borrowed from the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci to Andy Warhol. Check out some highlights below and the whole set here.

Oh, you know, farmers Bey-Bey and HOV in “American Gothic” by Grant Wood.

If Andy Warhol was still around, he’d switch out the Queen of England with the Queen of the Carters.

“Madonna and Child” or rather “Sasha Fierce and Blue Ivy?”

Maybe a little less unibrow here, but the radiance of Frida Kahlo is still there.
