Fine Art Look Alike

When you see this painting, who do you think of? 

Imagine the women in the painting wearing more "office appropriate" 
attire (though still blousy and low-cut on the top)...her hand on
the edge of a desk in stead of floating in mid-air.

When I saw this painting by Robert Henri
I immediately thought of Dollhouse's Adele DeWitt, 
played by Olivia Williams (below).

Not seeing it?

  How about here, in a poster from a movie she performed in....

What do you think?
Do you see the resemblance?
Have you ever seen an artwork
or old photo and though, that
looks like someone else?


  1. I've seen a few paintings at galleries that totally remind me of people I know. I'm always impressed at how I can get an impression that seems to span hundreds of years.

    1. Yeah, it's an odd feeling isn't it? I've seen some others but I can't remember them (if I ever come across them again I'll post them). There was one old photo that looked so much like a friend of mine that I imagine it must be an ancestor of hers.

  2. Ooh now that you point it out, I do see the resemblance with the movie poster.
