Swiss artist Felice Varini has a bit of a thing for giant anamorphic illustrations. The ones which only make sense if you stand in the perfect position and look at them at just the right angle.

I absolutely love the lighting and the dynamism in this 1907 painting by George Bellows. Not the sort of thing I usually post on here, but for some reason it really struck a chord when I stumbled across it:
