The incredible different between the paintings highlights the proportional differences and stupidly idealistic shapes. The Ancient Greeks are known for having created art that idealized humans and the human form, and yet even they did not expect size 8 women; they portrayed curvaceous women with realistically sized and shaped breasts and thighs.
I think that making a statement with art, like this, is such a creative way of expressing a point and puts it dramatically into contrast with the reality. What do you think? Thanks for sharing Jo! (she has such a great knack for finding these things!)
