German photographer Dorothee Golz takes the madness for memes a step further into fine art by Photoshopping heads from Old Master paintings onto contemporary images.  It works, oddly enough.  Among other intellectualizations, it puts the artist of yesteryear into contemporary perspective, especially Albrecht Dürer.  We always suspected he might have been a bit of a German hipster biker dude.

See Eric Baker’s piece for more silliness with fine art.
