This program, led by Whitworth University Professor
and Art Historian Meredith Shimizu, is the first of three lectures she is giving on
women artists of the Renaissance and Baroque eras. This lecture examines
Anguissola’s early self-portraits, in which she not only asserted her
considerable artistic abilities, but also challenged cultural assumptions about
woman’s limited creative power.
