    Very cool, the way this artist integrates, or even just hints at, famous masterpieces in some of these paintings. I wish I knew more about art history to precisely pinpoint and identify each reference, but I think I detect the following:

    Da Vinci’s “Vitruvian Man” in “Pink Angel”

    Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” in “Lisa’s Niece” (yeah, that one’s a gimme)

    Van Gogh’s “The Bedroom” in “Juliet”

    Vermeer’s “Girl with Pearl Earring” in “Intimacy”

    Rembrandt himself in “First Tattoo”

    Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” in “Aftermath”

    Picasso’s “Guernica” in “Babysitter”

    Also, is there a Degas or Toulouse-Lautrec or somebody like that in “Siblings”? And is there something familiar about the background of “Out Of The Square”?

    I found this site by accident but ill add my little thought to Bruce comment, in “first tatto” as bruce said we can find Rembrandt, but also i think that whole painting referee to Caracaggio painting called “The Incredulity of Saint Thomas”
