Editor Lauren Wade of TakePart reimagines famous nude paintings as they would look like if they matched today's beauty standards. Models today are oftentimes size 0 with tiny waists, creating a different ideal than used to exist before -- when women's curvaceous bodies were greatly celebrated. 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.

 

Raphael, "Three Graces," 1504-1505. Reimagined by Lauren Wade.

 

Edgar Degas, "La Toilette," 1884-86. Reimagined by Lauren Wade.

 

Francisco Goya, "Nude Maya," 1797-1800. Reimagined by Lauren Wade.

 

Sandro Botticelli, "Birth of Venus," 1486. Reimagined by Lauren Wade.

 

Amedeo Modigliani, "Nude Sitting on a Divan," 1917. Reimagined by Lauren Wade.

 

So what did you think? Have we taken today's ideal beauty standards too far? For more, visit TakePart.
