I just found that here: http://www.worth1000.com/emailthis.asp?entry=212379
Itīs a page where many well-known people are painted in some strange paintings.

I donīt get it! For my taste, it is not very beautiful... And in case of Veeīs picture it is so unreal, look at that fat stomach!

What do you guys say?

Most paintings of the era depicted beautiful women as volouptous (spelling). Seen the mona lisa?
