One more twist on the subject of painters working from photos and photographers recreating paintings. Hiroshi Sugimoto has taken photos of Henry VIII and his court. Actually, Sugimoto took pictures of waxworks at Madame Tussauds based on portraits by Hans Holbein the Younger. His trick is painstaking attention to period lighting techniques so his photos look like they were taken in the 16th Century.
Link - Thanks Robert!
So, let's recap: photos to art, then art to photos, then art to wax figures to photos (Link above). Got that?
