Women Painting Mentor

Gabriela Dellosso  "Women Painting Mentor"  2010

Adélaïde Labille-Guiard (see previous post) not only taught and mentored women artists of her own time (the 1700s) but has inspired women artists down the centuries, including contemporary painter Gabriela Dellosso.  In this large work (60 x 60 inches) which includes a self-portrait (the figure in the green skirt) Dellosso pays homage to Labille-Guiard and the long arm of art history

This painting by Gabriela Delloso is, to my mind, exquisitely balanced and intriguing on many levels. And, by the way, GREAT blog! I'm so glad you have undertaken this huge endeavor.
