I never understand the obsession with the Ross model - a doughty ugly looking man.
Doughy? (there's no "T" in the word... unless you mean something else besides what it seems you mean)...
Superman fandom is split right down the center... there are those to whom Superman is the Chris Reeves character (with everything else being ancillary) and those who know most everything about the comic character (with the Reeves character and all the rest of the TV/movie versions being ancillary)...
That's where Reeves was immeasurably better. And that's what the Ross paintings capture so well.
For the last time, it is Christopher Reeve
, not Reeves.
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be debunked.
