Throughout history, women’s image  have been defined by social constructs that objectify their body as well as define beauty standards that puts other women below for not having the same qualities. However, artists in particular have been creating artwork that not only breaks the traditional image of women, but also empower women in the expression of their/the female body. This project brings together 4 paintings that depict nude women and how visual analysis, context from the artist, and a bit of history and comparison to help portray the ways in which the portrayal of women brings about empowerment, redefining standards of beauty, and breaking away from subordinate roles while having liberty in their bodily expression. The app created for this project allows the user to read these analysis though they are also able to simply admire and observe the work and make their own interpretations while browsing.
