Anguissola Sofonisba

 

 

Anguissola Sofonisba (1530só1625).

Italian painter, perhaps the best-known female artist of the 16th c, influenced, as were many of her contemporaries, by *Titian. She mainly produced portraits and self-portraits. Her pursuit of a professional career did not conflict with contemporary notions of womanhood, largely because of her noble birth, and she was hailed as a prodigal exception. A. trained for 3 years under the man who appears in her Bcrnadino Catnpi Painthig Sojomsba Anguissola (late 1550s), in which she portrays herself as his subject. From 1559—80 she was court painter to the Queen of Spain.
