Angelica Kauffmann – Self Portrait

Angelica Kauffmann

A lovely self-portrait by the famous artist Angelica Kauffmann (1741-1807) painted sometime between 1780 and 1785. This oil on canvas features Anglica wearing a somewhat modest dress with several rows of lace ruff and a pretty hat.

It is a wonderful painting for anyone looking for examples of what was fashionable in haberdashery, dresses and hair styles in the late 18th century.
