Dressed in Van Gogh

Mattel recently unveiled a new line of Barbie dolls at Toy Fair in New York, influenced by the fine art greats like Vincent Van Gogh, Gustav Klimt and Leonardo da Vinci. The "Fine Art Barbies" translate some of the artists' best-known work into extravagant attires. 

The dolls will be available from July 2011.


  1. And I'm back to single figures...I really really really want a Van Gogh barbie!!

  2. Oh! I love this! Thanks so much for posting these incredible Barbie's! I still kick myself for giving my vintage Barbie's away when I thought I was too old to play with dolls. Now that I'm an old woman, and a patron of the arts, I simply have to have these lovely ladies...thanks to you I know about them. Still love your blog and visit frequently. Best to you, keep doing what you do.


    PS, do drop by the prairie to say howdy!

  3. It looks like I may have to buy some barbies!

  4. I really hope they bring the limited edition to this part of the world! Enjoy ladies! :)

  5. How adorable! I want the Van Gogh dress in my size!
