Women in art

This amazing video is a re-post in my blog, originally dating back to June 2007. My appreciation for its mastery has only increased. The creator Philip Scott Johnson managed to take 90 women depcited by famous painters and let them morph slowly but irresistably from one to the other. The background music is Bach's Sarabande from Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007 performed by Yo-Yo Ma - an exquisite choice. No wonder that this masterpiece was nominated as Most Creative Video for the 2007 YouTube Awards. When this was brought into circulation, a lot of questions were asked about isolated paintings in this video. All 90 have been identified meanwhile, and this website gives a very informative overview. You do need to see this. Trust me.
