A fat cat is a happy cat, indeed.

My name is Emily. I am a visual artist, writer, as well as book and cat devotee (Only when every home on earth is filled with over-sized felines will my quest end). I feel that art and literature offer an introspective passage into the lives of other beings. I believe in human equality; until our society can learn to accept all of her people, we will continue to face social discordance and impending disaster.

Art’s great nudes have gone skinny

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.

Is it just me, or did they look fine before?

The point of the piece is to show how beauty is socially constructed. She took paintings of beautiful women from the Italian Renaissance and put our standards of beauty on them. It is to show that women in art/media are getting smaller.
