Editor Lauren Wade of TakePart reimagines famous nude paintings as they would look like if they matched today's beauty standards.

Take a look below to see the differences, and let us know what you think in the comments.


Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, "Grande Odalisque," 1814. Reimagined by Lauren Wade.


Titian, "Danaë with Eros," 1544. Reimagined by Lauren Wade.
