Unrealistic Much? See What Happens When Photoshop Wrecks Women In Famous Paintings

In some of the most famous paintings in the world, the women appear with realistically beautiful, curvaceous figures. Since most of us are sick and tired of seeing the same general perception of the 'ideal body' as a stick thin figure with no boobs, tum or bum to speak of, it is shocking to see what Photoshop would have done to the most famous paintings of all time if it was used then.

Reduced cellulite, flattened stomachs and glossing over facial flaws are just some of the many measure that are carried out on Photoshop to meet the often unrealistic and unattainable standards of beauty imposed by the world media.

History taught us that the standards of beauty were once pretty different from our own, so how would famous works of art look if Photoshop had existed in their time?
