    1. So many artists, so little time! Discovering new paintings is like a treasure hunt. Thanks for visiting, Madeline. 🙂


  3. I went to the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) yesterday to see an exhibit of Italian women artists from 1500-1800. So interesting.

    1. How fortunate you are! I have been studying Giovanna Garzoni’s hedgehog in detail trying to understand how she created such magnificent textures… Did you have any favorites? Thanks for the link, Madeline. 🙂


      1. The audio had a section about the hedgehog and how it was created, but I am not much of a hedgehog fan, nor am I a painter, so it was beyond me. I found her paintings to be spacial or size challenged (large acrons, tiny mouse, etc.). I like paintings that portray women as real and beautiful, and this exhibit had quite a few like that. The one of the woman stabbing her thigh to prove her ability to endure was moving (and disturbing). There were two Mary Magdalen paintings that were interesting in their contrasts.

      2. Sounds fascinating! I am debating spending money on the catalogue… Thanks for the information. 🙂


      3. Perhaps the exhibit will come to a museum near you.

    1. He really did. I am looking forward to finding more of his paintings to study. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Rosaliene. 🙂
