Swipe File: Frank Frazetta And Jean-Jules-Antoine Lecomte Du Nouÿ

This is Les Porteurs de Mauvaises Nouvelles by French artist Jean-Jules-Antoine Lecomte du Nouÿ.

And this is Conan The Destroyer by Frank Frazetta

Let’s take a closer look at both.

Thanks to Craig Elliott for ferreting out this one.

In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself.?* If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn?t judge, it?s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
