Artists that are Women-Angelica Kauffman 1741-1807

I have long been interested in women artists. How did they manage, especially long ago. Some never married or were models and lived with other artists, but others had husbands, children and in those days, household staff. They still managed to do ART.



Self portrait of Angelica Kauffman 1741-1807

Swiss born Neoclassical painter. Had a successful career in London and Rome.

Please give her a look, and read more about her. You can copy or be inspired and based on her paintings do them in a different style or medium.

Post your inspirations here

An interesting artist Janet. I hope to take a look at the links you posted asap. Its good to give the 'forgotten' women artists of long ago a boost!! How did they manage in a 'man's' world of art...or in any other occupation in those days? We are lucky these days with the availability of materials and so forth.

Neat ones, Janet. Did you do the more complicated one first on the top and then work downwards? I like them all, the simplicity of the third one and the fifth one. Very nice pencil portrait too of the three ladies.

Here's mine.

Bogus kraft paper 9x12 inch
Pacific Arc Graphite crayon 8B

Re: Artists that are Women-Angelica Kauffman 1741-1807

Janet and Sandra, some Lovely studies here.

I have a book called:'Danger! Women artists at work'. There's an entry on Angelica Kaufman which I thought was interesting.

The painting is her one titled:

'Self-portrait of the artist hesitating between the arts of music and painting'.

She derived her portrait from the classical allegory of The choice of Hercules. This is the choice between virtue and a life of ease and fleshly pleasures. In Kaufman's painting she is shown bidding farewell to the 'easy' life of singing and turning to follow the 'hard' life of painting!!

She was apparently a lovely singer and could have chosen that path.

I like the acknowledgement of painting as a hard and virtuous choice. Anyway, she is considered in this painting to have taken a male subject allegory and re-interpreting it successfully and wittily. Something of a ground breaking thing in those times.

Lovely ladies Sandra. Hope I can do a little more of Angelica before the end of this month.

June, interesting information. I have been finding her everywhere since posting. I even got a bookmark from the Nat'l Museum of Women in the Arts with a painting of hers on it.

I have another artist for next month. Happy to discover these wonderful artists from the past.
