American Horror Story Likes Art

Couldn’t Help but notice the startling similarities of an American Horror Story ad and this photo:

Pina Bausch - Blaubart, 1977
Pina Bausch – Blaubart(Blue Beard) 1977

Also a second add bears some resemblance to a famous painting by Goya:

Francisco Goya; Witches in the Air 1798
Francisco Goya; Witches in the Air 1798

 

There are parts of 2 other ads that I could have sworn I’ve seen in paintings or photographs but I haven’t been able to find them.  Who knows, maybe someone with an arts degree is directing the ads?  I always like to see classical art in pop culture though.

Here are the references:

Picture 1, Painting by Goya

The Ads are all on Youtube.
