These photoshop renditions were entered into a contest that was entitled: If modern celebrities were the subjects of (slightly less) modern art.
CONTEST DIRECTIONS(abridged)
In this contest your task is to depict a modern celebrity as the model in a piece of fine art, but there is a catch: you must choose a work of art that is not done in the classical photorealist style. You must choose a piece with a distinctive style (i.e. brush strokes, specific textures, exaggerated features, etc.). You can choose from impressionism, pointilism, cubism, charcoal sketches, or anything so long as it's not photorealistic. The celebrity can be anyone famous....You are to photoshop a modern celebrity into a piece of art that has a distinctive, nonrealistic style, and make your new addition match the technique and texture of the painting.

I'm kinda partial to Klimt's Hepburn myself.
