Everything old is new again. Twitter account Tabloid Art History has been around since November 2016, but we recently spotted a story on AV Club that made us scope out the account’s latest offerings — and they are good. If your life is incomplete without tabloid news and you worship at the altar of LiLo, Brit-Brit, and RiRi, then Tabloid Art History is your everything. We already knew Anna Nicole Smith was a work of art, but her wedding to elderly oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall is compared to a Vasili Pukirev painting on the Twitter account. The Kardashians get a lot of art-y love, while the ’90s marriage of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman get a fine art homage during their years of marital bliss (if that was ever a thing) and after Nicole signed the divorce papers. “Because for every pic of Lindsay Lohan falling, there’s a Bernini sculpture begging to be referenced,” states the account’s bio. In case you can’t get enough, there’s also a zine. Check out all the photos here.
