The Wild, the Beautiful and the Damned: an introduction

Very educational video about women back in the day, specifically the 'Strumpets' attached to the Royal Courts. This video has been made to advertise a portrait exhibition at Hampton Court this year. When you think of portraits you tend to think of artists just painting the image in front of them. I was surprised to discover that these women told the artists exactly how they wished to be portrayed and some of them associated themselves with religious icons!! I find that fascinating... Sooo, if you could be portrayed in a specific way what comes to mind?

If you are an artist and would like your work featured on Its Braap~Its Life please contact us: itsbraap@live.co.uk
