a: Lord of the Rings ~
b: Caravaggio

What:

"The simplicity of light and shadow in Tolkien's text is far clearer than the Light and Dark of Lucas' saga. In this way, The Lord of the Rings is like Caravaggio high contrast, drama, and tenebrous lighting as symbols for morality's definition and simplicity. Star Wars is more akin to Rothko or Pollock color, chaos, and complexity. We can even see this in the color palettes chosen for the prequel films."
