Inventors:

Quote:Herschel was the first woman to receive full recognition in the world of astronomy. Between 1786 and 1797, she discovered eight comets and 14 nebulae.

Quote:The classic example is Catherine Littlefield Greene of Georgia (1755-1814). She is unknown to the general public, but experts on invention agree that Eli Whitney could not have developed the cotton gin---the quintessential American invention---without Greene's advice. In fact, some believe that Whitney stole the credit for what was essentially Greene's invention.

What an eye-opener for me. I thought I'd be hard-pressed to find any art of women scientists and inventors pre-1950.

Helene Schjerfbeck's self-portrait 1884:

"Portrait of A Girl", 1886:

I like.
The self-portrait sort of catches the spirit of this country.
The light...her skin, eyes like autumn sky, the bloody Lutheranism chuckle.gif so spot-on rofl.gif
And, of course, Ms Schjerfbeck wasn't exactly what you would call beautiful.
That would have spoiled everything.
Wonderful painting, thatone.

The young girl nicely done, too.

I've been drawing long enough to think i'm able to analyze and criticize someone elses art and so i'll say that this beautifully colored image looks a little off center,with too many (greens) on the bottom and not enough (pinks) on the top and so the womans face should be more towards the middle i think,but anyways...

That's assuming the artist was not trying to show an aura around the person.

Also could be the intention of the artist to put it a bit off balance just because it fucks with our brains. chuckle.gif

From your last post Beyond S, you got me thinking about how men determine what constitutes an attractive woman's face.

Quote:Importance of other women’s characteristics.

Several variables demonstrated a significant probability to be in the best approximating model: Young (β = −0.28; I = 0.91) and more frequently smiling (I >0.99) women were more likely to be chosen by raters. The “asymmetry” variable was adjusted for using the function: × + exp(x). More symmetric women were more often chosen (β = −0.04; I >0.99). The factor exp(x) indicates that attractiveness decreases faster than linearly with asymmetry. To determine the effects of femininity, the association between the degree of smiling and squared femininity was analyzed. Attractiveness increased with femininity, especially if the woman was smiling. Lip contrast did not exhibit a significant probability to be in the best approximating model (I = 0.49).

So, symmetrical with a smile takes the prize.


Quote:The most frequent choice (37%, P = 0.036, see figure 3) tended to be the women presenting similar facial features as the rater. Thus, women presenting similar phenotypes as the raters themselves were predominantly preferred (homogamy).

Is this why long-term couples tend to look like each other?

Does this also apply to selecting a pet? Yes...

"The results suggest that when people pick a pet, they seek one that, at some level, resembles them, and when they get a purebred, they get what they want".

This isn't accurate - the chain is supposed to go to a leather collar around the neck.

Their necks were probably too sore from having their husband's and the male cop's hands wringing it.
