500 Years of Women in Western Art

I am mesmerized by this video! It's a fascinating way to walk through Art History.

If you want to know more about the art included, this link has every still shot in order of appearance, along with the title, artist, and date of the work.

(Neda, if you can't see this from there, come back to it when you get home. It's worth the effort.)

The eyes are captivating!! Just like when I saw the Mona Lisa in person, we wept... the eyes, oh the eyes. Even to this day when I think about it, I get goose bumps.

Beautiful!!

I wonder if I could get this to be a screen saver
Thank you for sharing!!

I've seen that and have it bookmarked, it's amazing! the same site has some other interesting stuff too. But this one blows my mind, not only is the creator of this clip a fantastic computer wizard, but also an excellent art historian and an artist in her/his own right

Mesmerising is the word. It is really hard to look at - so many feelings and states - and the attitude of the artist seems to be reflected so much when contrasted with what goes before and after. Brilliant use of morphing
Thanks for sharing it

Wonderful, amazing. How did they ever make it? Somehow all the women resemble each other.
