The Female Face In Modern Western Art

April 30, 2007 by aaron

Here is another composite image video from YouTube. This one shows the evolution of women’s faces through the style of painting over the previous 500 years in Western art.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t separate the images ethnically or regionally, so while we do see a general progression of the style of the paintings, the ethnicity of the subjects sometimes clash as a piece of artwork might be done by of an Italian women followed by a Spanish woman, so it doesn’t display the changing cultural opinions and influences on feminine beauty, but is more just a progression of the entirety of Western artwork examining the female subject.

Still a good way to spend 3 minutes of your time.
