How Has Art Shaped Female Beauty Ideal?

What do you SEE in a work of art?

It could be fashion, architecture, famous myth, scenery, maybe even skillful use of light or brilliant color combination. What I began to notice when studying art history was distinguishing female beauty ideals that vary in time and region. Hmm.. You are not so sure?

This is going to be a very typical comparison that you may find in every intro art history book, but it’s simple as it is. These two images are distinctive representations of Venus. In The Birth of Venus by Botticelli, the goddess of beauty is manifested with sexual, well-proportionated body figure and light skin with rosy cheeks.

This Venus figurine from 22,000 B.C.E., on the other hand, has far different characteristics on its physicality. You can’t draw many beauty standards from it, but one thing is loud and clear: she’s got huge breasts and hips. Probably that was the parameter of female beauty ideal many centuries ago.

This is just a tiny snippet of what art history can tell us about female beauty ideals. Check out more on ARTSY.

How to Get the Brain to Like Art from the New York Times

In order to get audiences engaged with art in multiple senses, a neuroscientist and museum director collaborate in augmenting diverse museum programs; for instance, a horror film screening accompanied by a neurologist’s talk or based on a neuroscience observation “our brains are designed to respond to change, diversity and motion,” a smaller size of gallery with fewer artworks is being created.

“There are things that we know about the brain that help explain how we see the world, how we interact with the world as we move through it,” Mr. LeDoux said.

Showing good art or historically significant artifact is one role museums take, however, at the end of the day we can’t help asking what it means to be exposed to art and the meaning of art. Looking over the other fields–interdisciplinary approach–may yield an ultimate answer.

In Praise of Art Forgeries by the New York Times

Fascinating point of view on fake art.
The art critic, Blake Gopnik, convinces readers technically maybe forgeries are not at fault. They are good reminders of the very essence of modern-contemporary art, distinctive perspectives between geographical regions in practicing art, also the beauty of questioning trusted personal once a while, connoisseurs (aka art experts). And at the end of the day, truth to be told, high art market gave birth to art forgeries.

 

My favorite phrase:

The faker could be considered a faithful assistant of theirs who happened to arrive after they’d died; ditto the hundreds of forgers of Qi Baishi (Gopnik)
