1841 to 2008

I was at the Getty this past weekend with a friend who's visiting from another state and in one of the rooms, there was this one painting that caught my attention.

I thought to myself, "she looks like a certain model."

A portrait of Louise-Antoinette Feuardent
Jean-Fran├žois Millet, 1841
Oil on canvas
28 7/8 x 23 7/8 in.

Guess who.

Johanna Gene Stickland, who's been noticeably absent in the past show season. Hmm, I wonder what's new with her.

Man, that's pretty uncanny!

well, she also looks eerily like Saoirse Ronan, the girl in Atonement. They both have really disturbing stares.
