The Alex Ross Broken Mirror of Superman

I thought it was an interesting near-coincidence in the 1970s that the new actor playing Superman was named Christopher Reeve (without an s) and the actor from the 1950s television show was named George Reeves (with an s).

Apparently Alex Ross was also struck by the dichotomy between the two Superman actors because his painting shown here capitalizes on it excellently.

Very nice!
