Today’s Featured Artist:

Rosalba Carriera

1673-1757


According to Wikipedia Rosalba Carriera “was a Venetian Rococo painter. In her younger years, she specialized in portrait miniatures. It is for this that she was able to build a career in portraiture. Carriera would later become known for her pastel work, a medium appealing to Rococo styles for its soft edges and flattering surfaces.”Wikipedia


Something to ponder ... Why do artists paint themselves? Are we Narcissists? Vain? Self absorbed? Or simply studying expressions, shape or shadow?
