Sofonisba Anuissola (1532–1625) was born into an impoverished, noble Italian family, but she was encouraged in the arts by her father, who sent her drawings to Michelangelo for approval. She is well known for the paintings she made of herself and her family.

Join Alice Foster to explore the work of this extraordinary Renaissance painter who achieved artistic success despite the limitations of her gender.
