Meet Lavinia Fontana – Ultra Virgo of the 16th Century. I am not going to pretend that i heard of her before now and i am simply going to treat you to these cut/pastes from her Wikipedia which i believe paint a portrait of AWE.
She is regarded as the first woman artist, working within the same sphere as her male counterparts, outside a court or convent.
She was the first woman artist to paint female nudes, and was the main breadwinner of a family of 13.
“Her relationships with female clients were often unusually warm.”
“Her husband took care of the household and served as painting assistant to his wife, including painting minor elements of paintings like draperies”
“Lavinia is known for having produced the largest number of art pieces ever for a woman of the Renaissance.”
Eleven children, a house husband, freelance artist career and all this in the 16th Century.
