App Matches Woman to Painting of Her Own Grandmother

Talk about eerie!    A St. Louis woman was taken aback last week to see that Google's Arts & Culture App, which matches user selfies to famous paintings, paired her with a painting of her real-life great-grandmother. The Riverfront Times reports that Kate Stewart's maternal great-grandfather was noted painter George Bellows. The matched portrait, "Emma in the Purple Dress," depicts his wife, Stewart's great-grandmother. Stewart says she was "a ballsy, awesome, strong-willed person" who had her ashes scattered in peony bushes after she died.
