Fascinating! I love Sofonisba Anguissola...this is a fun addition to my knowledge about her. Thanks!
Iím impressed that both you and Cyril are familiar with this lady. I am not quite so well informed!
If you enjoy Renaissance art, definitely look her up! Her paintings aren't as dramatic as some other artists, but she has such a knack for capturing the personality of her subjects, and often there's a real tenderness in her paintings. Without being too stereotypical, she definitely uses "woman's intuition" to analyze and reflect the essence of her subjects.
