Uhhhh, ok. I thought I was just explaining the realities. It's real easy to say to all the male artists in history, "make your female figures active" it's a whole other thing to pay them to do that, or give them the talent or imagination to do that. Bougereau was a one-in-a-million artist. Most artists are 999,999-in-a-million.No they shouldn't - they can be doing stuff like the below. Stop being lazy.
I just realized I repeated Arenhaus' point with my post. Sorry about that.
