This thread is all about the sources modern artists and photographers use as inspiration behind their works. After all, imitation is still the highest form of compliment - at least as long as it doesn't turn into plagiarism.

I'll start this thread with Alex Gross.

Here are two examples of imitation gone completely wrong. Only fashion photography can create such horrible analogies:

Hehe.. nah.. I'll just make the thread slightly NSFW.

Thanks for posting the x-ray lady! Great interpretation.

And now to another lady: The Lady of Shalott...

I'm not quite sure about the "inspiration" for Ryden's and Bowers' Venus with Bunnies fascination, but I could imagine that it was one of Vecchio's pieces.

Thank you soooooo much for adding these two beautiful pieces to our little collection, my dear.

Even though I'm an ardent Ernst groupie, I'd actually go for Colette's version. I mean the lady's dress just screams for wings. I also think she did an amazing job by breaking up the floor into burning trompe l'oeil sections. And strangely enough, I also felt that Ernst's door in the background was missing a handle and a keyhole, so I'm really glad that Colette took care of that too. I think Ernst would be very proud of her.

And for those of you who are still looking for a Christmas present: Ernst's "Une Semaine de Bont
