500 Years of Female Portraits

My Geek sent me this cool art video. It shows 500 years of female portraits in Western art. Watch the video while looking at the eyes or the mouth only and see how they change or stay similar over time. I was surprised by how many works I didn't recognize.

Oh my goodness. I think I am in love with that video.

How phenomenal that technology can do such awesome things when you know how to use it!

The blend and succession of female portraits really captures the feminine mystique: coy, innocent, alluring, pure, aloof, joyful, knowing, peaceful, wise...
Going to watch it again.
