This is one of the posts I’ve been saving up to do for a while…

This YouTube video shows a fantastic morph of 500 years of the painting of women in Western culture :

There are a number of individual paintings in there that I would love to know the artist and title / model for. Unfortunately, to date at least, searching by image input is something the ‘net just doesn’t do. This is where the people reading this come in. I know that, for example, corone has studied some art history and may be able to help out but more than that I’d like to try a six degrees of seperation experiment. I’m willing to bet that someone who reads this knows someone who knows someone who has studied art in depth and came name all of these. However – this idea will only work if you all put a posting on your own blogs about this and ask the people who read them to do the same.

Please comment on this post if you can fill in the gaps for any of these and I’ll update the original post.

Thanks everyone.
