    500 Years of Women in Western Portraiture by Philip Scott Johnson.

    When I watched this popular morphing video (500 Years of Female Portraits in Western Art by Philip Scott Johnson) I thought “that’s beautiful – but what a narrow spectrum of women he chose.” I created an album of portraits as my response: see the Pin on this board that's a portrait of a lovely elderly woman for the link to my album.

    Women In Art (Video). 500 Years of Female Portraits in Western Art.

  • ArtWire

    Philip Scott Johnson took portrait painting depictions of women spanning 500 years of Western art and assembled them into this incredible animation video. It makes you realize how many amazing portrait artists are out there and how beautiful and powerful their work is--and has been--for centuries. Enjoy!

Bronzino (Agnolo di Cosimo) ~ Portrait of Ludovico Capponi, 1551. It has always been my belief that the Renaissance in Venice and the North of Europe was so different from that of Rome bec they didn't have the history of the classical world hanging over them (and next to them and under them).
