I don't really agree with Steve Jordan's comments. I am a fine-art photographer, it is necessary to know the artists who came before you and learn from them, but I should never stand upon there shoulders when making my own images. When I began photography gallery owners would say "your work looks like Edward Weston". That was not a compliment, today they say my work looks like mine and mine only.

When an artist (writer, painter, photographer, musician) dies let there work stand on a pedestal on its own for us all to appreciate. No other artist can do justice to their books, art or music.

That's my opinion for what it's worth.
