Age of Idealism by VampireHungerStrike Age of Idealism by VampireHungerStrike
I wondered what the masters of ideal beauty of the 19th century thought of the Elephant Man. Here I imagine Joseph Merrick as painted by someone like W.A.Bouguereau.

This oil painting measures 18 x 24 inches, and is painted on panel.

This is an amazing concept and so well done! It looks like it was done by one of the old masters :D I think Joseph Merrick really would've liked it :)

I'm imagining this was on one of his trips to Northamptonshire; he was walking picking wildflowers and decided to strip X) I mean this in good humor, I'm laughing at my own stupidity for thinking of it.
