The Art of Aging Well

Artist and feminist Tina Dolter is on a one-woman crusade to prove that growing old does not mean growing ugly. Well, it's a one-woman crusade if you don't count the dozen women, all over 40, who struck poised and alluring poses for Dolter to paint. The depictions are realistic, the models radiant, and the results remarkable. "Our culture is changing. We're living longer, and we're living healthier longer," said Dolter. "These women have a good attitude about their bodies. Your body now is not your body when you were 20, and that's OK." For Dolter, being comfortable with one's body is far more beautiful than being youthful, and she's out to prove it with her paintings.
