On a recent visit to Padova, I was arrested by some paintings in the Museo Civici, both done by Ginevra Cantofoli. I vowed to write a post on this intriguing painter, and here it is. It isn’t much…I hope someday to add more.
All I can add right now is this info from Wiki:
|Died||1672 (aged 53–54)|
Cantfoli received her training as an artist from Elisabetta Sirani in Bologna. She painted works for several churches. These works included a Last Supper for the Church of San Procolo, a St. Thomas of Villanova for San Giacomo Maggiore, and a St. Apollonia for the Church of La Morte.
