I don't know if this will work but I hope it does. :clap: You look at the painting and if it reminds you of the style, mood, theme, color, etc. of another painting, you find an image :crossfingers: and post:

"That [perspective] reminds me of"
...........[*image*] :lol:

It doesn't have to be famous, but it can. I guess it could be the same artist if it is sufficiently different. :thumbsup:

I'll try starting.

Which Piccasso reminds me of this guy, Alan Bond, the same that took the Americas Cup off the Yanks, but is famous for having said, when in conversation with an art advisor, " so, this Picasso, worth having or what?", and who later went on to have a pair of ancient and rare bronzes stripped of their verdigris because he didn't like the colour, so painted them orange instead. It was many years later of course, that he'd acquired sufficient knowledge to fork out $40 mil of other people's money on van Gough's Irises. He took up painting himself in prison, and was pretty good too, but by then I suppose he'd learnt a bit about it.

Hope posting a photo doesn't contravene the posting rules too much.
