"500 Years of Female Portraits in Western Art" - Joan Lennon

Here is Philip Scott Johnson's marvelous, mesmerizing video, with Yo-Yo Ma playing Bach's Sarabande from the Suite for Cello No. 1 in G major.

I hope you love this as much as I do!

Splendid editing work and nothing beats beginning the day with Yo-Yo Ma. Thank you, Joan.

Very interesting how much more often the female gaze is averted or modestly downcast so that when a painted woman looks you in the eyes it is shockingly intimate.
