Banker Snatched by the Bandersnatch

Comparison: 2009-01-27

 

This is probably one of the strongest examples for resemblances between graphical elements in Holiday's illustrations (1876, cut by Joseph Swain) and graphical elements in another image.

 

In this case the images are a segment of the illustration to The Banker's Fate (after his encounter with the Bandersnatch) in Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark (1876) and a horizontally compressed copy of The Image Breakers (1566-1568) by Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder.
