Beautiful. Striking.

And now for some art. These are images I have found beautiful or striking, suggested by things I read.

I found The Fountain of Youth by Lucas Cranach in New Philosopher magazine. Is that armpit hair, straggling down longer than her elbow?

The naked Maja.

A “Maja” was a lower-class Spaniard who wore exaggeratedly Spanish dress, and mocked rich Frenchified Spaniards. Note the way she gazes at the viewer.

This is by Jenny Holzer. Do you agree with her?
