Google Matches Woman With Her Own Great-Grandma!

posted by JP - 

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.

Want to try the Google Arts & Culture app for yourself? You can find it on Google Play and in the Apple Store. A match with a painting of your relative not guaranteed.
