Illustration by Henry Holiday to The Hunting of the Snark (1876) and The Image Breakers (1566-1568) by Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder.

This is the first comparison which I made between a Snark illustration by Henry Holiday and another image. A second discovery followed. That is how the Snark hunt started in December 2008. At that time my dealing with Holliday's illustration perhaps was a bit too playful and some matches marked in this comparison may be questionable. But it was a good start.

(2010-11-25: I updated the URL in the image. There are no other changes.)

Illustrations from Henry Holiday (from The Hunting of the Snark,1876) and Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder (Allegory of Iconoclasts around 1567): In the "mouth" of Gheeraert's "head" a praying priest is depicted. The shape of the priest also is visible in the "mouth" of Holiday's vanishing "Baker".

This is not plagiarism. This is a puzzle in a picture similar to puzzles in textual artwork (poetry,novels etc.), where readers are challenged to detect references to other writers. Holiday may have used the shape of the priest in his own illustration in order to indicate to the beholder a relation to Gheeraert's illustration. Holiday also used other elements from Gheeraert's etching in his own work. (en.wikiversity.org/wiki/User:Snark)

Segments from prints
• [left] by Henry Holiday (mirror view, from The Hunting of the Snark,1876) and
• [right] by Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder (Allegory of Iconoclasm, around 1567).

In the "mouth" of Gheeraerts' "head" a praying priest is depicted. The shape of the priest also is visible in the "mouth" of Holiday's vanishing "Baker"

When quoting shapes from Gheerarts' etching (and from other sources), Holiday's engraver Joseph Swain must have played an important role. Carving a shape into a print block yields a mirrored print of that shape. The segments on the left side are displayed in mirror view.

I low pass filtered (blurred) all segments in order to focus on the resemblance of the larger structures.

This was my 1st finding in December 2008. I made this image in 2010.

Illustration by Henry Holiday to The Hunting of the Snark (1876, chapter The Vanishing) and The Image Breakers (1566-1568) by Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder. Gheeraerts' etching may have been one of the reasons for having to search exile in London. Henry Holiday took more caution.

This comparison is based of my first discovery in December 2008. There is a set with some variations of this comparison.

What does blurring do to images? The Priest in the Mouth detail is displayed using two high resolution images (middle) which then again have been low pass filtered (bottom). As you see, high resolution not allways helps.
