Pretty cool video on women in Western art

One of my coworkers at Reference found this video online... how many of the portraits do you recognize, either from the original paintings or from historical novel covers?

It gets bizarre and a little creepy toward the end, when the more modern pieces (Dali, Magritte, Picasso) start to appear.


  1. Pretty cool! I recognized several of them from book covers. It's kind of like those "morphing" music videos they had in the late 80's.

    I'll add my voice to the chorus of "cool". And maybe because I watched it on Halloween, the modern pieces weren't scary at all. I loved it all the way through. Every time I watched it.

    Thank you Sarah for sharing this.
