Artist Photoshops Boticelli Paintings To Show Changing Attitudes In Beauty

Today I was reading an interesting article on some of the most famous paintings by the Italian artist Botticelli.

The article talks about how perceptions of female beauty differ at certain points in history.

His original paintings show women who would be considered plump and overweight by today's standards. But were held as figures of beauty in Boticelli's age.

Whilst there is no doubt cultural norms do have some influence over our perception of women. Nonetheless, I was always under the impression male attraction was pretty seamless for women, and what was hot 500 years ago is what hot is now. As those women in those paintings look pretty damn chunky to me!

Note: This is not ammunition for fat bitches thinking it's OK to be fat.

What do you guys think?

The generously-proportioned bottoms and bulges of Renaissance beauties have been slimmed down by Italian artist Anna Utopia Giordano to illustrate changing perceptions of feminine allure.

I'm not into sickly thin women. I prefer the thicker originals.

I think alot of men nowadays are more feminized hence the appreciation for unhealthy, androgynously skinny women.

Just had a business idea for a photoshopper out there

Market girls on Facebook and offer to touch up (slim down) their photos for a fee. Good business idea now that almost every woman is fatasfatass.

Sorry didn't mean to hijack the thread. Interesting article though.

In every single one of those paintings I prefer the thicker ones. Guess I should've been born in Baroque era Europe.

I do like the slimmed down ones, but the thicker versions are still easy on my eyes.

We know what it takes for a women to maintain a good body once she is out of her mid twenties: Work.

Women in that era did not go to the gym. Women of a certain class did not do anything.

If Boticelli painted sexy peasants it might have been different.

I did not think any of those original women were fat (except the second image), I just thought they were soft. Nothing some time at the gym couldnt tighten up.

While these women were being painted, their husbands were fucking the servants that stayed thin by doing chores.

The originals look much more feminine and enticing.Women are meant to be curvy not freaks like modern 'models'
Fashion designers are just not talented enough to design for them.

I definitely prefer the thinner ones, though there were a few of the heavier originals that I'd be just as happy to lay.

I mostly go for petite women though. I suppose it's because of their rarity these days in the West. My main girl is 5'0" and weighs just over ninety lbs.
