"Nymphs and Satyr" Bouguereau, 1873 - I saw this painting in London back when I was a teenager. Larger than life, it was so vibrant. I remember having this conscious breakthrough~ 'big soft behinds really WERE the ideal of female beauty once upon a time!' With this insight into the relative/subjective nature of beauty (as opposed to the media ideal of the 80s and 90s I was accustomed to), it gave me permission to accept myself just as I was.
