Art stands the test of the time. And maybe some celebrities. At least that is what French graphic artist and art re-toucher Bénédicte Lacroix is trying to do in this whacky series of Photoshopped historical readjustments of some famous paintings.

Lacroix has a tumblr blog devoted to these "voyages dans le temp" (time travel). Go there to see more and also admire her ability to place the minions from Despicable Me into the most wildly appropriate historical context.
