500 Years of Female Portraits in Western Art
by Vilje Portelli
Vilje Portelli
Vilje Portelli is a Swedish/Italian artist based in California, USA. When she is not sculpting the human form or painting she often can feel inspired to share beautiful things via Circus Bazaar.

Laying back surfing the internet I found this beautiful video and couldn’t help but share it.

[dropcap size=small]I[/dropcap] know that it does not take into account women outside of western culture but nevertheless it is as beautiful as it is flawed. I expected there to be some type of political point at the end but there was none. In someways with all the saturation of politically inspired blogs it was just nice to have the thinking done by me and myself only.

The video was created by Phillip Scott Johnson. The full list of all the women in this film can be found here.
