Renaissance & Baroque Painters of the Fair Sex

Formerly of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, art historian, Veronique Sintobin Dulack, delivers an illustrated presentation, Renaissance and Baroque Painters of the Fair Sex.

What did it take for Sofonisba Anguissola (1535 – 1625), Lavinia Fontana (1552 – 1612) and Artemisia Gentileschi (1593 – 1652) to become professional painters? Their life story and artistic production echo the creative trials of modern day female artists. Their accomplishments have made it possible for other generations to follow in their footsteps. Véronique Dulack will highlight the lasting impact of these legendary women.
