Art School Barbie

Written by  Phoebe C.

Barbie. The tall, blonde doll launched back in 1959. The instantly recognizable face was used by French photographer Catherine Théry to recreate famous paintings. The art collection, titled 'Not the Ones You Think,' showed recently in Paris, was intended to raise questions and make a statement about "beauty, intelligence and women's place in society." Below are a few famous pieces:
