Or does this:
Look an awful lot like this?
The first image is, obviously, the cover of a previous "green issue" of Vanity Fair and can be seen at the Huffington Post entry here. (I'm unable to discover from the accompanying post who the photographer was; if anyone can give me a name, I'll be glad to give full credit.)
The second image is an Irving Penn study of ballerina Tanaquil Le Clerq as Ariadne in the 1948 Ballet Society production of The Triumph of Bacchus and Ariadne. She is posed with Corrado Cagli (designer), Vittorio Rieti (composer) and George Balanchine. The photo appeared on the cover of Vogue.
When this particular issue of Vanity Fair appeared on newstands a few years ago I remembered the Irving Penn photo immediately and wondered if the near-perfect similarity was the result of a.) conscious homage to Penn, b.) accidental resemblance c.) outright immitation or d.) unconscious duplication.
I have never made up my mind. Does anyone know the name of the photographer, and has he ever revealed any knowledge of the Irving Penn portrait?
Update, October 8, 2009:
Photographer Irving Penn has died. I thought I would move this little post up to the top of the queue for a bit to honor his memory.
Further Update: My goodness! It's an Altalanche! Welcome, folks.
