The Best Three Minutes of My Day

Art is not the application of a canon of beauty, but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon.  When we love a woman, we don’t start measuring her limbs.  
— Pablo Picasso 

This is gorgeous – a video of women depicted in Western Art in which each painting or portrait morphs into the next.  There are some that are very familiar to me, but many more that I’m sure I’ve never seen before.  I think it’s beautifully done and worth three minutes of your time.  It ends on Picasso’s “Francoise,” which I only recently discovered (through my grandmother, who sent me a Smithsonian article about it with a notation at the top: “She reminds me of you; think it’s the eyes.”), but love immensely (Picasso is by far my favorite artist).  Enjoy!

  1. I’m glad you like my video. Picasso is also my favorite artist which is why I ended it with several Picasso’s. I actually have another morph video on youtube devoted strictly to Picasso paintings.
