biblis-original.jpgLooking at William Bouguereau’s paintings of scantily clad women you might think it was always summer in the 19th century. It wasn’t, but Bouguereau clearly preferred sunny days to create his art. His 21st century followers have different ideas. Here is a variation on Bouguereau’s Biblis (1884) by bingobaby, gold winner in a SportRen contest on Worth1000, in 2006.

In 1880, William Bouguereau painted Temptation, a scene in which a mother presumably tells her little daughter the story of Adam and Eve, and the temptation of the apple.
One hundred and thirty-four years later, digital artist Danielle Pioli from Santo André, Brazil re-created her own version, featuring an Apple of a different kind: an iPhone. Danielle presents herself as a character designer, concept artist and illustrator on several platforms, including Facebook, Pinterest, DeviantArt and Behance.
