13 Disturbing Works of Art by Female Artists

13 Disturbing Works of Art by Female Artists
After we posted 13 Disturbing Pieces of Art from History , several readers pointed out that none of the works were created by female artists. So, here are 13 more disturbing pieces of art, and they’re all created by women. 1. Artemesia Gentileschi - Judith and her Maidservant The most remarked-upon absence from the previous list was Artemesia Gentileschi’s version of Judith Slaying Holofernes (as opposed to the Caravaggio, Judith Beheading Holofernes , that we featured). Feel free to click on each and decide which you prefer! 2. One of the greatest painters of the 20th century, Mexico’s own Frida Kahlo is most notable for her self-portraits. 3. This particular painting is not so much creepy as it is bizarre. 4. Rosa Bonheur was one of the great painters of the French animalier style popular in the 19th century. 5. A far more modern piece than previous entries on the list, this painting was only created just under a decade ago, in 2003. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. Related:  Various ArtistsArt 1

viktor hertz - official website & portfolio Charlie Layton - Drawings on the Fridge Charlie Layton – a freelance designer and illustrator from Philadelphia, USA. Each week, he draws on his refrigerator easily erasable marker. His creations Charlie every week puts on Facebook under the name “Frosty Friday”. On the creation of each of these “marker masterpieces” Charlie takes about 20-30 minutes, and it usually ends with a cup of coffee Friday morning. That’s right, dear, magnets on the refrigerator no longer in vogue.

These Photos Are Actually Pencil Perfect Drawings At just 22 years old, Italian artist Diego Fazo has developed the skill to create photo-realistic drawings using a simple charcoal pencil. His latest creation, pictured below, has drawn hundreds of positive comments on his Deviant Art profile. Don’t tell me you can tell the image below is a drawing and not a high-definition photograph, because I don’t buy it. In fact people were so skeptical this incredible piece of art was drawn by hand that young Diego Fazo had to put up some photos of the work in progress just to lay doubts to rest. And looking at his-mind-blowing masterpiece, can you really blame people for questioning it’s hand-drawn? Like other talented artists who started their careers on Deviant Art, Diego is a self-taught pencil master whose technique matured with the passing of the years. Scroll down for more of his awesome drawings, and check out his Deviant Art profile, as well. Reddit Stumble
