This video takes you on a fairly amazing tour of the great portraits of women in Western art. It moves from da Vinci to Picasso, and, along the way, the portraits seamlessly morph one into another. This morphing allows you to see how artistic styles changed over time, and also how the human face has been artistically treated during different periods. Watch the video below, which is accompanied by Bach’s Suite No. 1 performed by Yo-Yo Ma. For information on the paintings covered in the clip, click here.
