Lilah Ramzi, creator of Part Nouveau, had a great idea. With art and photography, many of the great images we see today are concepts that are borrowed from the past. She found the potential source of inspiration for many of these images and put them together. The result is a great lesson with a concise history of where they also originated from.
Some of the sources of inspiration are also paintings, drawings, and other artistic mediums. The site is updated frequently with more samples added on a regular basis. You can find some examples from the site below. Be sure to check out the full website here: http://partnouveau.com/. For any post that catches your eye, be sure to click on 'continue reading' for more details on each of the examples.
It goes to show that ideas are always recycled. It doesn't necessarily mean that they are made any better the second time around.
