Lovers of art and fans of technology will equally appreciate this stunning video, tracing the evolution of our ideals of feminine beauty through famous portraits of women, spanning the centuries.
I’m sure there’s a deep message to be gained here — something about beauty and art and character showing through the eyes and body language giving clues to the authority of women in a certain place and time.
But frankly, I’m just not that much of a feminist intellectual, nor an art historian. I just think these woman are beautiful… individuals, or one ever-changing Platonic Ideal of womankind.
