Francis Derwent Wood and the ideal female body


I don’t know much about serious art, but I am impressed by Francis Derwent Wood and his sense of anatomical proportions.

Very few women who work out at the gym have a body like the one shown above. There are skinny women, and there are overweight women, but I see very few women who have strong thighs and slender torsos.
