Subject: RE: MOAB - Mother of All BS [annex]
Don, going back a couple of posts, I've been scanning slides from an artists' collection at a local museum, and the two artists whose slides I'm scanning were interested in painting all sorts of things. There was a folder with a set of composers' portraits, and having grown up with classical music, I recognized them so added the names to the metadata. So, not BS, just interesting overlap. They made reference to the most popular images when they created their paintings of these artists, and added some human 3D characteristics. For example, it's clear that George Fridric Handel is probably wearing a wig in the historic photos, but in their portrait, the forehead shadow at the hairline is such that you can see a more human person who happens to be wearing a wig.
