I was surprised when I read this post from Neatorama and I went on with my own investigation.
Then I discovered that many impressionist artists used and copied photographs for their paintings. It was already known that photography inspired impressionists to capture the moment, but what we didn’t know until now is that some of the most famous paintings of Van Gogh, Toulouse Lautrec or Paul Gauguin were just a copy from an original photograph. Here you have some interesting examples.
