This lovely lady is a self portrait of Artemisia Gentileschi. As a 17th century Italian painter she broke a lot of boundaries for female artists and became the first woman accepted into the Academy of the Arts and Drawing in Florence. We feature this image on one of our postcards atSKETCH and love being able to share her story.
