Rosalba Carriera, Painter to the Grand Tour, Great Venetian Painter Lucrezia Walker Tuesday 10 March 2020

This Venetian Rococo painter specialised in portrait miniatures for the Grand Tourist and established a successful career in portraiture, painting for royal, wealthy and important patrons. Carriera would later become known for her pastel work, a medium appealing to Rococo styles for its soft edges and flattering surfaces. She is remembered as one of the most successful women artists of any era.
