Exit Slip: What is beauty?
 • Ideals of physical beauty-
   male and female- vary
   greatly from one culture and
   time period to another. That
   of the slender Cycladic
   woman contrasts strikingly
   with the curves of the Greek
   feminine ideal seen in the
   kore of 520 BCE. These early
   female figures may be
   compared with later versions
   of female beauty as seen in
   Botticelli’s sensuously fluid
   Venus, Manet’s Olympia,
   and Rodin’s realistically
   depicted woman in The Kiss.
Exit Slip: What is beauty?
 • Curiously, the angular,
   segmented, two-dimensional
   body of the Cycladic female
   figure has less in common with
   these substantial feminine
   images than with more modern
   figures, such as Picasso’s 1907
   Demoiselles d’Avignon, and
   more recently, with
   contemporary fashion models,
   whose slim bodies and angular
   features adorn the covers of
   popular women’s magazines.
