It was put together by eggman913 and is simply amazing. I do wish he'd publish a list of all the portraits included and who they were by. Maybe it will turn into one of those great competitions where people have to try and name them all?!

[Update - to include above image] I don't know if the Met version of "Maria Theresa" was in or not as I've only watched it once - but this video has made me spend some time looking at female portraits - and also made me think about wanting to look at more in the future and how they have developed over time - both on screen and in exhibitions. I'm greatly intrigued by all the portraits presented and the very many different ways of portraying the female face and head.
