Three-minute video morphs between images from 500 years of female portraits in Western art. Hard to describe, but worth a look. picked by hypnotode 4 years ago

Wonderful post!

I'd still be more interested if it were focusing on bodies and not just faces. I think women tie a lot more of their self-esteem into society's definition of what body type is attractive than face type.

That looks to be because the artists favored using models with a rounder, more "feminine" shape to the faces.

For me, the video was most interesting in the last 30 seconds when the impressionistic and surrealistic art started taking hold.

you can see it in the face. women with larger or rounder facial features were considered beautiful in their times. its sad how we've come so far yet have gained so little.
