Love these beautiful portraits by artist Annie Kevans, from her series Women and the History of Art, which depicts key, but forgotten, women in the history of art, ranging from Lavinia Fontana, a 16th century artist whose sitters included a couple of popes and Elizabeth Vigée-Lebrun who was court painter to Marie Antoinette, to Marie Bracquemond, one of “les trois grandes dames” of Impressionism and Sonia Delaunay, co-founder of the Orphism art movement. Brilliant and inspiring women who lived extraordinary lives. Annie's show is on at The Fine Art Society in London until June 6 2014. More about the artists featured here.
