500 Years of Female Portraits in Western Art
Here’s an awesome video that has been viewed millions of times on YouTube, and was nominated for Most Creative Video at the 2007 YouTube awards. The music is Bach’s Sarabande from Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007 performed by Yo-Yo Ma. The video was made by Philip Scott Johnson (YouTube ID = eggman913) and uses 90 pictures created from the 12th century to the 1940s.
Here is a really cool page which identifies each image used in the video, and also provides links to larger version of the whole original picture. Thanks Boni!
