William Bouguereau's painting morphed with Silvio Berlusconi's figure

Satyr Silvio, originally uploaded by Gian Boy 2.

A crisis, scandal or anything that stirs the public mind has the dynamic power to bring out masters out of jacks. The renowned French academic painter William Bouguereau (November 30, 1825 - August 19, 1905) is famous as a staunch traditionalist whose realistic genre paintings and mythological themes were modern interpretations of Classical subjects with a dynamic emphasis on the female body, and his almost photo-realistic style was popular with rich art patrons. As you see above his painting is morphed with Silvio Berlusconi's figure by a creative mind of 21st century.
