I am here to give to you very excited news! I’ve been preparing something very special to all of you: the Women’n Art Bookmark Collection!! It is a collection of bookmarks of your favourite women artists. Amazing, isn’t it?
It will be 10 bookmarks of 10 self-portraits made by 10 relevant women to the history of art. The collection is ready and it is BEAUTIFUL!
We choose as the protagonist of our first official bookmark the impressionist artist Berthe Morisot and her self-portrait painted in 1885, which is part of the Musée Marmottan Monet’s collection and is one of the masterpieces in the current exhibition at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. Morisot is one of the most important names of the Impressionism, considered for her contemporaries as one of the most innovative painters of the movement.
The second bookmark of our collection is the self-portrait of Angelica Kauffmann painted in 1770-75, which is part of the National Portrait Gallery’s collection. Kauffmann was one of the most important Neoclassical painters. She was born in Switzerland, but worked in different citie of Europe as Rome and London.
Kauffmann was a very successful history painter and portraitist and she’s also remembered as one of the founding members of the Royal Academy of Art in London. She is a key name in Art History and couldn’t be out of our collection.
If you have any questions about how to acquire any of the bookmarks contact me here or on the email firstname.lastname@example.org and with the subject “Women’n Art Bookmarks”. I’ll be happy to answer all your questions.
Very soon I’m going to show the next two bookmarks! Stay tuned!
