  1. This is a fascinating video…I’ve watched it before. Interestingly, almost none of the faces portrayed an open-lipped smile in which I could see any teeth. Maybe this is because it’s hard to hold a natural smile for the hours necessary to paint someone’s portrait! 😉 And I did see several faces I recognized, even if I couldn’t name them! True of my photo students as well! 😉

    1. I thought it surprising that so many of the faces in the paintings over 500 years looked so similar, both in composition but also nose and lip shapes etc.
