Italian artist Anna Utopia Giordano has created a visual re-imagination of historic nude paintings, had the subjects conformed their bodies to what the 21st century considers an ideal of beauty. The results are revealing—and quite shocking in what they say about the modern attitude toward women’s bodies.
if i was going to guess what dress sizes these women were before they were downsized i’d say by modern standards they were a 14/16, 12 at smallest guess… that’s what i prefer to look at paintings for my examples of beauty and not magazine ads… believe me its a lot more self-esteem building and much more attainable.
LoriTaylorFineArt: Wow- there is nothing beautiful about the altered paintings. I think what makes the originals so beautiful is that the women are curved, soft, and almost angelic. I’m sure Victoria’s Secret would disagree but I don’t see anything angelic when I view straight lines and angles on a woman.

I’m beginning to think that all people who are not cismen need to start their own party. Amirite?
Alice Paul (right) was such a badass. I’m currently reading Jailed for Freedom by Doris Stevens, another badass suffragette. I highly recommend it.
