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! 😉
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.
Thanks so much for posting this. I was totally mesmerized by the similarity of faces over time just as you were.
You’re quite welcome Allan.
Lovely work. I can only imagine how long it must have taken to put this together.
