500 years of women in art


Nothing short of breathtaking

Some observations;

- Portraits are endlessly fascinating. This is doubly true for portraits of women.

- Something went drastically wrong with art from the late modern, post modern periods. The self indulgence of the deconstruction movement, while interesting, is revealed also to be deeply ugly in comparison to other periods.

- The morphing of portraitures from one piece to another is so seamless that if you pause the video at any given point you will rarely find yourself looking at the actual painting, but are instead looking on some transition point between paintings created by the software. Slick.

- This also means that as your watching the video, pictures of women - women who never existed in reality or imagination - emerge from the space between the portraits.
