Video: 500 Years of Women in Western Art

We’ve just discovered this brilliant video by Philip Scott Johnson which was nominated for the ‘Most Creative Video’ in the second annual YouTube Awards. It features 90 portraits of women from Western Art, dating from the 2nd half of the 12th century to 1954.

Can you spot masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci, Sandro Botticelli, Titian and Raphael? Classics by Edouard Manet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres depict women in the 19th century, whilst portraits by Alphonse Mucha, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Kazimir Malevich reveal the diversity of 20th century portraiture.

We love how this short video captures the diverse beauty of both women and art, revealing changing trends in fashion, style, painting and portraiture over a 500 year period! Which is your favourite female portrait? Check out our Pinterest board ‘Women in Art’ for more images of women in Western Art, including photos of celebrated female artists.
