I posted this to Tumblr already, and no one cared, but I am still curious about the fan artist's choice here:



(Left: cover of K/S zine Nome, art by The Southern Cross (1984). Right: Stars by Maxfield Parrish (1926).)
Did the fan artist use the painting because it looked cool and/or helped convey the mood she wanted, or did she expect the viewer to recognize the reference and think deep thoughts about what it means to cast Kirk in the role of the female nude of Western art?

TCS often painted "in the style of" various painters such as Parrish and Modigliani. I remember hearing her talk about her Parrish inspiration at a convention in the 80s; however it's been 30 years and I can't remember details. I do know she was very familiar with art history.
