Meanwhile, at the movies. . .

Just three of hundreds of compelling comparisons I recently just came across on this irresistible Twitter feed, @CinemaGrids . Check it out. . .

The Angelus (iterated)

On the left: "The Angelus," by Jean-Francoise Millet (1857-59). On the right: "Archeological Reminiscence of Millet's Angelus," by Salvador Dali (1933-35).

Salvador Dali was so taken with Millet's painting "The Angelus" when he first saw it as a child that in addition to painting variations on it for years he wrote a book about it, The Tragic Myth of Millet's Angelus.

A couple of Dali's additional iterations: Top: "Atavism at Twilight" (1934); Bottom: "Archetonic Angelus" (1933)

Of brothers and fathers. And Tim.

On the left: Tim (center) with his brother, Kent, and his father, Ed. Prescott, Arizona, circa 1983. On the right: Tim (center) with his brother-in-law, Grant, and his father-in-law, Grant. Port Townsend, Washington, September 2015.

This one just happened. . . Realizing that the photo I shot of Tim with my brother and dad this weekend looked familiar, I went digging and found its very similar older counterpart, taken in 30+ years ago.

Mere coincidence?
