GRRRL POWER (?)


This is a collection of not only powerful female figures (Judith anyone), but of women artists.  Yes, I know we are supposed to be beyond the idea of focusing on the sex of an artist, but if you look at the "History of Art" you will find few female artists mentioned.  That being said, Mr. Walters was one of the 1st American collectors to purchase female artist works...and here are some of the greats! Sofonisba Anguissola, an Italian Renaissance painter who was court painter to King Phillip II of Spain..Lavinia Fontana, another Italian artist who excelled in portraiture and had Popes as patrons...and the French painter & sculptor Rosa Bonheur.  Did she love to paint cows?  Take a look. Another amazing object..take a look at the Ivory chess piece...it is the only medieval chess piece of a queen in an American collection.  Something so small and yet so detailed...
