The 6 Hottest Babes of Renaissance Art

We suddenly wish we hadn't skipped so many art history classes.

Painted in 1504, she’s beautiful, loves to laugh, and also famoulsy seduced a dude, then cut his head off with his own sword. In her defense, she only did that one time. Also, she's hella stylish. Seriously, she pulls off that dress so well the rotting head she’s standing on really takes a back seat.

Mona Lisa may get all the mainstream attention, but check out this awesome hipster chick also painted by Da Vinci.  She’s not like the other girls. For instance, she’s literally holding a weasel that looks like it just got out of prison. She's cool, she's cute, and we guarantee if she turned her head you’d see a tasteful neck tattoo.

We're in love. She’s got fair skin, beautiful red hair, and - judging from the way she accessorizes with ropes - she seems like a real free spirit. If she were alive today she’d probably make tiny artisanal pies and sell them at a farmer's market in Brooklyn. 

The Lute Player (Caravaggio)

This girl is like a medieval version of Taylor Swift. She can play it all: The lute, the violin, the recorder (?) and the lesser-known baby piano. Her music probably sounds something like this, and we don’t know about you, but that really revs our engines.

Don’t think she’s awesome?  Well look down, bonehead. See that thing she’s holding? That’s what’s commonly referred to as a unicorn. So basically your point is moot. And if you don’t think a woman holding a baby unicorn is sexy, there is something seriously wrong with you.

Artists often refer to the Mona Lisa as the “Boner Lisa.” And by artists, we mean our cousin who works part-time at a Subway (so he is technically a sandwich artist). This girl's got so much intrigue - is she smiling or is she not? Why is she in Middle Earth? Why was The Da Vinci Code so popular? We may never know.
