After Rosalba Giovanna Carriera: 'Rosalba Carriera'

Explore the paintings

Rosalba Carriera was one of few women to make a successful career as an artist in the 18th century. She began her career painting portrait miniatures on ivory to adorn the inside of snuff-box lids, and by the time she was in her twenties was attracting an international clientele for her portrait miniatures and pastel portraits. This picture is based on a pastel self-portrait that she made in old age, now in the Royal Collection at Windsor.
