Contest Directions: The first eyeglasses were invented and made in Italy around 1280, and while their popularity grew, the first artwork that depicts sunglasses appeared only in 1352. The reason why eyeglasses were very rarely used in portraits was that on the design side they were quite bulky and ugly. It was not til the 19th century that eyeglasses became stylish, modern, and popular so much that people liked to be photographed and painted with them.
Let us show how famous paintings would look if characters there were depicted with eyeglasses (modern or antique) PLEASE NOTE: LIMIT 3 ENTRIES PER PLAYER. Thanks to Hobbit for the theme post. For some good examples of past Eyeglass Art Visit This Link
