Beschrijving

This exhibition in the Prado Museum reveals the artistic personality of two of the most outstanding women artists in western art.

For the first time, it gathers the most important works by Sofonisba Anguissola and Lavinia Fontana, two painters who achieved recognition and fame among their contemporaries for, and despite, their status as female painters. A total of 70 works will be shown by these two artists who broke free from the rigid expectations of their epoch about the role of women and their ability to create art.Although their backgrounds and lives were very different, in both cases their fathers played a vital role in their careers. While Sofonisba specialised in portraiture and eventually became a lady-in-waiting at the Spanish court, Lavinia opened a highly active workshop in Bologna, producing a wide variety of paintings including portraits, religious works and mythological subjects, often featuring nude figures.
