Beauty: Then & Now

An article posted earlier this week by Lauren Wade shows the ways in which the “ideal woman’s body” has changed drastically in recent decades.  Using historical works by Titian, Rubens, Gauguin and more she photoshops the full figured, voluptuous and healthy BMI’s into what today’s standards have become, just like the fashion magazines do.  Check out the full-body transformations…


 Titian, Danae With Eros, 1544

Dante Dominique Ingres, Grande Odalisque, 1814

Edgar Degas, La Toilette, 1884-86

Raphael, Three Graces, 1504-05

Paul Gauguin, Two Tahitian Women, 1899

Francisco Goya, Nude Maya, 1797-1800

Sandro Botticelli, Birth of Venus, 1486

Amedeo Modigliani, Nude Sitting on a Divan, 1917
