Which Came First?






















Take a look at the photo, above left, and the painting/print, to the right. I have had that photo for quite a while, and I found the painting/print just last week. It was then that I noticed more similarities than differences between the two. Look at the overall pose, the positioning of the arms, the tilt of the hips, the positioning of the head, and the perspective angle of both subjects.

Is this life imitating art, or art imitating life?

It's really hard to tell--

Now logic would say it is art imitating life---as it would be difficult for a live model to look exactly like a painting.

I have somewhere a photo that Vilmar posted in his EYE CANDY--and I found 2 or 3 other exact images but a little bit more arty than the photo.

Photoshop?

I think the photo came first as well. Even the detail on the location of the shadows is almost identical. Could be Photoshop, or somebody used the photo as the subject for a painting. Either way, it's kinda eerie and more than just coincidence.
