Artistic Visions of Women with Women (without commentary)

dfcdd3b168acdfeacb99dfa94bd4e82c.jpg

 

Artistic vision is having the clarity to fall in love with what you see. - Chogyam Trungpa

 

This post represents a travel through time to see a sampling of artistic works whose subject is primarily the connection of women with other women.  Along the way we'll see different kinds of relationships and bonds that women have with each other which artists and society in general have decided has value and is worth celebrating.

This post will feature paintings and images only to give viewers the chance to feel their own impressions without any extra/spoiling input from me. There will be a separate post where I will post my comments along with the paintings and images.

I love this! You have the best blog posts. It's so enlightening to see these through times past. The sleepers is my favorite, thus far. I agree with @ZuZu'sPetals your posts are wonderful.

@ZuZu'sPetals @JadeBleu15 @ChemFemThank you so much for your kind words. I love the process of finding and organizing beautiful art but the best part by far is hearing that people like the results! :wub:

@JadeBleu15 @ChemFem I love The Sleepers too, and it's influence on the world is quite profound I think. It feels to me like it's the "Mona Lisa" for lesbian and bi-sexual women.
