Kauffmann painting, Self-Portrait


Angelika Kauffmann was an 18th century Rococo and Neoclassical painter who was born in Switzerland . She was the daughter of painter Johann Josef Kauffmann who has been called a far inferior painter than his daughter by art historians. As a young girl, she quickly learned a number of languages and became a talented musician. However, her true talent lay in painting, and by the age of 12, she became an artist of note, and even had noblemen and bishops sitting for her.
