PLOT TWIST!!! Anthony is a girl!
Hello there, the name is Anthony, I'm a 21 year old female who may spend too much time online and drawing.

I reblog a lot of pointless crap on here solely because I enjoy it. I also will post sketches, artwork, and the works. You can find it under my art tag.

ART HISTORY MEME→ [3/8] Artists
Artemisia Gentileschi, 1593-1656

Susanna and the Elders (1610) Judith and her Maidservant (1613-14) Sleeping Venus (1630) Penitent Magdalene (1615-16) Corisca and the Satyr (c. 1640s)

Artemisia Gentileschi was the daughter of painter Orazio Gentileschi. Instead forcing her into domestic life, her father encouraged and nurtured his daughter’s artistic talent, allowing her to work in his studio. She later became one the most accomplished painters of her time and became the first woman to become a member of the prestigious Accademia di Arte del Disegno.

When she was 17, Artemisia was raped by her mentor and family friend Agostino Tassi. Her father pressed charges against Tassi which resulted in a seven month trial, during which Artemisia was subjected to torture in order to verify her testimony. Tassi was found guilty and was sentenced to jail time which he never served, and Artemisia was quickly married off to avoid the shame of lost chastity. The trauma from the rape and torture stayed with her for the rest of her life and is reflected in her paintings. This can be seen in her work Susanna and her Elders, where Artemisia portrays Susanna as bothered and harassed rather than sensual and seductive (as drawn by male painters).

She is also one of the most progressive painters of her generation. Rather than painting women with the stereotypical ‘feminine’ traits, like timidness and weakness, which was typical of male painters, Artemisia portrayed women as confident, rebellious, powerful, and equally competent as men. This reflected her struggle to gain respect as a female painter. As a woman, however, she was able to use actual nude female models for painting, giving her an advantage of better naturalism and anatomical accuracy over her male counterparts.   

When Artemisia Gentileschi died, her name fell into obscurity for a long time, with many of her paintings being misattributed to her father. She was ‘praised’ by 19th and early 20th century art critics as “the only woman in Italy who ever knew about painting.”

Laverne: Nicole, does your belief system now change, in which you now know you don’t need him to be there? 
Nicole: No. I think what happens is it turns into less a conversation about my blackness and more about relating to humanity, because that’s really what we’re trying to do. We’re just realizing that people are capable of doing it. We’re underestimating people because people said we weren’t viable.

This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off.
I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.

Holy shit what did he do?? That’s rad as hell!

Since the runway was going to have simulated rain, he wanted to make the outfit become colorful because of it rather than deflect it. He sewed dye into the seams and once the rain hit it the dye ran! Very simple but super effective. He was one of the two winners of that challenge.

Absolutely brilliant. Holy shit.

Everyone should watch Sky High for the sheer fact that there is a character whose mother is a superhero and father is a super villain and the kid’s name is Warren Peace. 

Warren Peace, man. 

He also looks like this, if that helps at all

This movie is ridiculously underrated and the fact that they didn’t get to make it a four-part series like they had planned is a tragedy
