Here's Looking At Me: Sofonisba Anguissola and the Problem of the Woman Artist

Sofonisba Anguissola, Bernardino Campi Painting Sofonisba Anguissola,
I have been very remiss in writing new posts this summer, not for a lack of new material but for not having enough time. I did write a guest post on one of my favorite blogs though. Thanks to H. Niyazi and his blog http://www.3pipe.net/ I am adding a profound amount of fascinating knowledge about the Renaissance to my studies of art history.  Sofonisba Aunguissola was a rare and a fascinating figure - a woman artist in 16th century Italy - and  I hope to write about her work at a later date. But for now, please check out the post...


  1. Lavinia Fontana's work is a must-check if you did like Sofonisba's painting and are further interested in early examples of women artists.

  2. Hello,

    Actually I really like Lavinia Fontana's work as well but I think I am partial to Sofonisba because I see her as more of a maverick. There is a post about Fontana in the blog I wrote this review for if you are interested. link
    thanks for the comment.
