Who are the most influential female artists in history? This is a self-portrait of Sofonisba Anguissola (1538-1625) at age 28. She was (probably) the first female painter to achieve international fame. And because she was the first woman to have a successful international career, she inspired many women during and after her life to follow in her footsteps as an artist. Anguissola got a proper art education, was very talented, and met some important people early on in her career, including Michelangelo. But what really got her career going was that at age 27 she was invited to become the tutor of the Spanish queen, which led her to become the official court painter for the Spanish king, Philip II. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #Portrait #SelfPortrait #FemaleArtist #FemalePainter #Painter #Artist #Female #Influential #Important #Sofonisba #SofonisbaAnguissola #Italian #Renaissance
