Renaissance For Women
During the Italian Renaissance, women were born to be married off, usually in order to strengthen familial ties. Once married, a woman was then expected to bear as many children as she could.
However, more female painters existed during the Renaissance than is immediately apparent, and more and more of their incredible stories are being unveiled and recounted.
At artnet, we come across a lot of interesting lots in the Price Database. Sometimes it’s the kind of media that is used, the subject matter, or a combination of both that makes the work particularly remarkable. In early February 2013, a Christie’s Interiors sale included a Portuguese majolica ewer in the form of a lizard dressed as a monk.
