Lynd Ward’s poignant illustration of Frankenstein’s creature reflecting on his inhuman form in a pool of water, and the newspaper ad for Darren Aronofsky’s film, “The Wrestler” with Micky Rourke portraying an aging professional wrestler.
Two characters reflecting on their place in the world? The Lynd Ward illustration is from a 1934 edition of Frankenstein, published by Harrison Smith and Robert Haas (New York). The ad is from the Village Voice.
