Beauty inspires. In history, it is the common thread that drives artists, painters, sculptors and writers to create, to attempt to capture it and distill it into an understandable idea. In turn, their vision of what beauty is has shaped our vision of it. And even if beauty is in the eye of the beholder, our collective definition of it has evolved, perhaps through these artistic depictions. It has come to be defined by allure, glamour, symmetry, sexiness and perfection.
