Do you like to keep it real? Well, so did the German painter, Wilhelm Leibl, one of the most important realist painters in Europe who was praised by none other than Vincent Van Gogh. His work revolves around the authentic portrayal of human subjects. To him, it wasn’t important whether a model was beautiful, but rather that the painter was able to ‘perceived them well.’ So there you have the proof – you don’t look ugly in photos, they’re just bad photos.

Recommended if you like: keeping it real, art, being artsy, important painters, looking at paintings for hours, wearing a scarf indoors that is elegantly slung around your neck, wearing spectacles you don’t actually need, using the word spectacles instead of glasses
