Famous paintings of the world - Coronation Street style

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog May 2015, reposted to this blog with permission.)

With Liz McDonald behind the bar of the Rovers Return recently being compared to the Edouard Manet's painting A Bar at the Folies-Bergère, let's see if we can remaster some more Old Masters.

I have limited Photoshop skills so bear with.

How about Tim and Sally as Grant Wood's American Gothic.

Leanne Battersby is Girl with a Pearl Earring by Vermeer.

Tracy Barlow as Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa.
Alma Baldwin emoting along to Edward Munch's The Scream
The Platt clan sitting down to The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci

Roy and Hayley in Dance at Bougival by Pierre Auguste Renoir

With thanks to our blogger Emma for this one - Corrie meets Caravaggio.

Our blogger Stevie Dawson sent in this one, of a painting of George Washington.

And speaking of Coronation Street death bed scenes, our blogger Emma reminded me that when Mike Baldwin died, the Radio Times mocked up a death bed scene linked to an artwork in 2006.

DubWeasel sent this one in via twitter. It's a Frida Kahlo as depicted by Blanche Hunt.
Coronation Street Blog reader Leslie Katz emailed this one in:
