Modern albums in old paintings are just awesome

Ever tried clicking ‘artists’ on your iPod to find a cluster of paintings from the renaissance era flash up on your screen?

No, because that would be silly wouldn’t it? But that's the idea at the core of Instagram account Album + Art, an ongoing series meshing modern albums with classic paintings for seemingly no better reason than seeing the likes of Lil' Wayne chilling out in a crib of 18th century Belgium. The work of genius Eisen Bernardo, they're spectacularly fun.

So with a certain Mancunian band just given the special treatment, which just might now be the earliest depiction of swagger in the art world, we could think of no better excuse to bring you the best of them.

Enjoy.
