Picture: Uffizi

Further to the post below, a reader has kindly alerted me to this tumblr of famous faces in art history. To be honest, some of them are a bit far out. But Georg Penckz's 1544 Portrait of a Man with an Enormous Red Codpiece Portrait of a Seated Youth does look eerily like man-of-the-moment Mark Zuckerberg. And oddly enough, the actor Hugh Bonneville seems to vaguely crop up in a number of pictures, one here, and another here.
