500 Years of Eyebrows in Art

The morphtastic video 500 Years of Women in Art shows a panoply (look it up!) of women's images as seen through the eyes of artists down through the centuries. This in itself is cool, but if you're me, it also serves as a proxy for viewing the history of women's eyebrows through the ages (I feel a dissertation coming on).

Enjoy this mini-lesson in the history of Western painting, and stay tuned, because in future postings I'm going to highlight the best individual selections for eyebrow-appreciators, with info on the artist and the subject of each.

Oh, and turn the sound up. That's Yo Yo Ma playing Bach's Sarabande in G major for cello.
