For the women who have endured overbearing men throughout the centuries, Men to Avoid in Art and Life pairs classical fine art with modern captions that epitomise the mansplaining spirit with hilariously painful accuracy. In the past, Tersigni had let those kinds of irritating conversations go, but this one sparked something in her.I have so many favorites, but the one that makes me laugh every time I see it is Portrait of Sir Henry Capel by Sir Peter Lely, where a man is standing next to a bust of a lady, a statue, and he’s got his hand on her and says, “You are not like other girls”. She Googled “woman surrounded by men” (“because that is what that moment feels like when you’re online,” she said) and stumbled upon a 17th-century oil painting by Jobst Harrich of a woman baring one breast in the middle of a scrum of bald men.

The “comments” pair well with the artwork and in some cases, I had to wonder (based on the expressions of the women) if they weren’t actually thinking something similar. I don’t know what the intention is behind that, but it was fun to take my experiences in the culture and world I live in and interpret what’s going on in a painting that has existed for so long.

That surely gives hope that maybe we are not in a painting of the 15th century anymore, that there is some change happening. And then, when I was putting the book together, I had to use art in the public domain; that’s why many of those paintings are older or very obscure. That is definitely the feedback that I’ve gotten more; so many people have said that it is so nice to know that this is not in their head and that they are not alone. So then I would save them all in a big file and then see if I could find something funny in the painting or if there was a painting that could work for a joke that I wanted to make. Suppose you are not satisfied with any of the historical or fantasy dramas out there lately where all kinds of slander, deception, and politicking.

It's interesting to see how many paintings have a female giving that "ykim" stare directly at the viewer (and which are put to good effect here). Another long time reader who read romance novels in her teens, then took a long break before started back again about 25 years ago.
