It was interesting to see the changes of painting style over time. I like the older ones better.

Fascinating clip. I’m afraid art is devolving.

Yes, they are.

Too bad they all have the ability, if not necessarily the propensity to turn into the psycho-humans from Hell.

You be correct. The later "artists" looked to be on drugs. Other than a few exaggerated eyeball sizes, the older paintings were obviously done to capture the lady, not make some idiotic artsy statement.

One of them is darn near photographic in accuracy. Spooky.

It isn't the art, it is civilization.

True.

They all have the ability to turn into psycho-humans from Hell. But few do it. Thank God.

Google “Birth of Venus”.

Several paintings of the most lovely representations of the female body.

The beauty of Woman is both a Divine creation and proof that there is a God.

****************************

The Botticelli painting is indeed beautiful. Woman is the Crown of God’s Creation. After He created the earth and everything in it (including Adam), after he created all the stars and planets, all the distant galaxies, all of the universe—He then created woman. Last of all. Best of all. The Crown of Creation.

Any man with a good woman knows that she’s Divine Proof that God truly loves us.

Cabanal and bouguereau are my favorites!

I’m taken that the clitoris has no function other than to be stimulative.

My favorite Venus is the Bouguereau, with all the other Venuses following close behind.

Now THAT’S a race I’d love to see!
