top Machine Vision Reveals Previously Unknown Influences Between Great Artists
It's more than just that the two paintings share 3 or 4 similar items. There's also where they lie within the composition.
Then there's the overall composition of the piece. The overall balance is similar although one biased to the right the other to the left, and the similar trait of something slanting into view at the left edge at about the same angle.

I used to put 8 out of 10 shots in a man sized target from 500 meters with an M-16A1 when I was in the Corps, and the grouping was smaller than the distance from heart to hind quater of a deer.
Most people don't take shots from nearly that far away when hunting. If you can't be within two feet of your point of aim from normal hunting ranges the problem isn't with the rifle.

Once had a guy at work do an entire engine system schematic for the E-2C in Paint because the project manager was too cheap to buy an Autocad seat.
