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.

Rajacenna Draws Celebrity Portraits Rajacenna is an 18-year-old self-taught artist from the Netherlands who draws the most realistic portraits I have ever seen, using only pencils. I’m a big fan of realistic drawings, and I’ve previously featured amazing works like the pencil drawings of Paul Lung, the ballpoint pen portraits of Juan Francisco Casas, or Cristina Penescu’s detailed scratchboard masterpieces, but at only 18 years of age Rajacenna is in a league of her own. Born in 1993, she started modelling for various Dutch companies when she was only 4, and at 5 years old she made her first appearance on television. She starred in films, soap-operas and tv-series and at 12 she became the host of Kinderjournaal, the first Dutch web-tv for kids. She only took up drawing in 2009, and although she had never taken any art classes she produced some stunning pieces. Reddit Stumble
Rubén Belloso Adorna We’ve all had our eyes fooled by artists with photorealistic techniques such as Pedro Campos’ picture perfect oil paintings, Paul Cadden’s hyperrealistic pencil drawings, Samuel Silva’s ballpoint pen drawing, and Nathan Welsh’s city paintings, but never before had we seen it done with chalk…until now! Rubén Belloso Adorna of Seville, Spain creates enormous portraits that are so detailed, you would not believe they are not photographs, but they are actually drawings made with chalk pastels. You can see the true magnitude of each drawing when you see the photos of Adorna working on them, yet even when you zoom in and look closely they still look like a high definition photo.

Explosive Diahhrea Explosive Diahhrea The Ryan's Steakhouse Storyby Anonymous Funniest darn thing that has ever happened to me. A couple of weeks ago we decided to cruise out to Ryan's Steakhouse for dinner. It was a Wednesday night, which means that macaroni and beef was on the hot bar, indeed the only night of the week that it is served. We went through the line and placed our orders for the all-you-can-eat hot bar then sat down as far away from the front of the restaurant as possible in order to keep the density of kids down a bit. I had not really been feeling well all day, what with a bit of gas and such. Unfortunately, that was not to be. I went to the normal stall. For those women who may be reading this, let me take a moment to explain "The Move." I was about halfway into "The Move" when I looked down at the floor and saw a pile of vomit that had been previously expelled by one of those little bastards attending kids night. But remember, I was only halfway down on the toilet at that moment.
