Giovanna Garzoni

A baroque artist (1600-1670) who I first came across through a TLS review which referenced Giovanna. I’ve posted a link to some of her displays of seasonal flora and fauna, which I love, I also like her calm portraits of still animals and older faces.

This one is ‘The Old Man from Artimino’, and was painted in tempura when Giovanna herself was in her late 40s/early 50s.
