Description Barbara Longhi was an active member of the workshop of her father, Luca Londhi, in Ravenna, Italy, the city where she seems to have passed her entire life.Very little is known of Barbara Longhioutside a small number of delicate images of the Madonna and Child, a subject that was not only popular with clients but for which, in a conservative environment, she as a woman artist could readily compete.
