For your viewing pleasure: Women in Art

This is not a new upload to YouTube, but still one I find captivating. Take a tour through 500 years of portraits of women, and notice the themes that emerge. There’s the importance of the gaze, the only ever-so-slight smile, and the tilting of the head. Looks like those painters liked their women as elusive as they were beautiful…

    This is breathtaking and quite mesmerizing. I could see it as an exhibit itself, on a monitor in a museum, for people to watch and then go view some of the paintings from which the images are taken.

    To whoever developed and produced this, bravo!
