and not one reverse mullet in the lot. ;)

Women in art. http://www.wimp.com/womenart/ I thought this was really cool and good inspiration, as well.

I wanted to examine each hairstyle a little longer. :D Pausing takes away the effect.

What's a reverse mullet?

Google image search for "Kate Gosselin" - the cut is longer at the front, around chin length on her, and then short and spiky at the back. :)

http://www.maysstuff.com/womenid.htm Here is a list of the paintings and the artists for closer examination. I found myself trying to absorb the image, the hair, remember who painted it, and watch the morphing process all at the same time. It was a bit much to take in but was pretty cool anyway. I like this list, also. It slows it down a lot for my old brain.

Thanks for that, my old brain appreciates it. :)

(I also love that the second painting of a woman with gorgeous wild wurls is called 'The Lady of the Dishevelled Hair'. :lol: )

Thanks for sharing, I like how the women seem to move, and except for the modern stuff, notice a kind of similarity in the features of the women, facial features, the proportions....

Additionally, I also seemed to note a kind of chronological forward march along the spectrum of the various artworks, many of which I recognized, as will many of you. It seems to have been put together in some sort of chronological order according to when the work was created.

Neat-o. The music is lovely too.

The thing I noticed most was the fact that the prevailing thing that remained throughout all the pictures was the fact that almost all had lovely straight noses - I wonder if when it all comes down to it, it's not big lips / big eyes / beautiful hair, but in fact nasal correctness that is the beautiful quality? :)

Nasal correctness... that's a new one on me. :p Is a nose wrong if it isn't straight?

I just assumed the majority of the painters and their models were European. :shrug:

you're quite right!
i think it has something to do with people biologically being attracted to something that is a sign of good health, as is a straight nose, since it implies that the person hasn't had a serious illness or been in an accident of some sort.

AND they all had great hair! i used to be WAY more into makeup till i relized how important good hair is :)

I noticed the similar features. As well as a high percentage of straight noses, there was also a high percentage of high foreheads.

Is it the noses or the symetry of the eyes? This was lovely. I like to go back thru the old posts sometimes & catch up on what I have missed.

Thank you so much for posting this! For anyone interested the music was Sarabande from J.S. Bach's 1st suite for cello in G major. I am a cellist, so I was super excited. Now, it is gonna bug me who the performer is. Was that Yo Yo Ma? No this is gonna drive me crazy....
