Ideas of female beauty in the past
The few images of women’s faces and figures from different historical epochs, cultures and peoples that have reached our time attest to the diversity of standards of feminine beauty, on which ideological standards and ideas about women that reigned in different historical times among different nations laid an indelible imprint.
So, the world's most beautiful girls, whose photos are regularly published by the world's leading publications, are not at all like the female ideals of the Paleolithic era. The Willendorf Venus belonging to that period, whose age dates from the XXII-XXIV centuries. BCe., more of a hypertrophied image of female sexual characteristics, reflecting the fertile functions of women.
With the development of mankind and the emergence of ancient states, female beauty is becoming one of the main themes for artists and sculptors. The most famous examples of feminine beauty of ancient eras that have come down to our times are ancient Egyptian and ancient sculptures and images of women.
The famous sculptural portrait of the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, as well as the verbal description of the last representative of the Ptolomeev dynasty - Cleopatra, left by the ancient Roman philosopher and thinker Plutarch, allows you to create at least a general idea of the ideals of female beauty in antiquity.
The ancient era laid the foundation for the standards of the beauty of the human body - the so-called golden section: the whole belongs mostly in the same proportion as most to the smaller.It is for these indicators over many centuries, up to our time, female beauty is measured.
This rule throughout all subsequent epochs did not lose its relevance for the proportions of the face and body. Historical epochs imprinted on this standard, “dressing” him in various “clothes” of his time, but on the whole did not change the traditions.
The ideals of the Middle Ages, who emphasized the severity and austerity of female beauty, replaced the riot of the Renaissance, which sang the beauty of a naked, magnificent female body. Representatives of Flemish realism were among the first artists to reflect the real feminine beauty of the 17th century, among which Peter Paul Rubens stood out particularly vividly.
The rule of the "golden section" continued to operate in the later times of classicism in art, when the emphasis was on the elegance of female beauty. It has not lost its relevance in the modern era of the postmodern, in which the facets of the standards of female beauty have become more vague and diverse.
