    I'm not prepared to put my pic up yet!

    Surely:

    Even I'm getting a bit steamy from that! Socrates was famous for being ugly!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Newton (Known for his science, but still was a philosopher!)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marquis_de_Sade (FULL ON KINK FACTOR!)

    Women are a bit harder to find....

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Cavendish

    Oooh. Now thats going further back in history than I first thought of. Yes. Cleopatra was quite the nymph so the stories say... though if my memory serves me right, she was not actually as attractive as she was made out to be. Rather the exoticness of the Egyption female was enticing, for her colour and female power was the object of desire, not actually her looks. I could be completely wrong though.

    Same with most Royals, just look at the current crop!

    There are the odd stories of artists being killed etc for not painting powerful people prettily enough. Apparently the bust of Nefertiti was rather 'generous' (not her boobs).

    Tudor monarchs were particularaly bad for it. I think Henry the VIII had killed a few artists he commissioned for his portraits. The bloke drank all day and night (as most people did as alcohol was used to steralize water) and so I imagine that along with his heavy frame and rummied face he would have been quite a challange to paint admirabley..

    It also explains why his portraits were always masisve...

    There is someone in one of my lectures used as an example, you can tell its an old picture, sultry looking woman in black and white... If I ever get the same she's on this list!

    Hard to ask the lecturer 'who's that fittie demonstrating personal identity?'
