Not my best side

"Not my best side" is a perfect and humorous example of Ekphrastic

Re: the Grapes of Wrath

Does the term "ekphrastic" need to apply to one form, usually poetry, enlarging on or developing the theme or content of another art form? Then, is Grapes of Wrath, the book, referring to the song or poem, from the Old Testament? Or is it referring to photographs of the time?

my last duchess

My last duchess by Browning is also an Ekphrastic one.

Grapes of Wrath

I feel like that work would work well with this literary device. We can see Steinbeck's use of this when he describes the forlorn landscape.
