Sofonisba Anguissola y Lavinia Fontana. Dos modelos de mujeres artistas

Museo Nacional del Prado. Madrid 10/22/2019 - 2/2/2020

Calendar Add to the calendar

The exhibition will reveal the artistic personality of two of the most outstanding women artists in western art. Through a total of 60 works and for the first time, the Museo del Prado will jointly present the most important paintings by Sofonisba Anguissola (ca.1535-1625) and Lavinia Fontana (1552-1614). The two artists achieved recognition and fame among their contemporaries for and despite their status as female painters. Both were able to break away from the prevailing stereotypes assigned to women in relation to artistic practice and the deep-rooted scepticism regarding women’s creative and artistic abilities.

The exhibition will present the work of these two women, whose artistic personalities were to some extent obscured over the course of time but who in the last thirty years have once again aroused the interest of specialists and the general public.

Curator:
Leticia Ruiz, Head of the Department of Spanish Renaissance Painting at the Museo del Prado
