Fra Filippo Lippi, O.Carm. (c. 1406 — 8 October 1469), also called Lippo Lippi, was an Italian painter of the Italian Quattrocento (15th century). Lippi was born in Florence to Tommaso, a butcher, and his wife. If his birth name was different, it is no longer recorded. Both his parents died when he was still a child. In 1420 he was admitted to the community of Carmelite friars of the Priory of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Florence, taking religious vows in the Order the following year, at the age of 16. He would have been ordained a priest sometime around 1425, and was to remain in residence in that priory until 1432. In his Lives of the Artists, Vasari says: “Instead of studying, he spent all his time scrawling pictures on his own books and those of others.” The prior decided to give him the opportunity to learn painting.

“Artemisia Gentileschi or Artemisia Lomi was an Italian Baroque painter, today considered one of the most accomplished painters in the generation following that of Caravaggio. In an era when female painters were not easily accepted by the artistic community or patrons, she was the first woman to become a member of the Accademia di Arte del Disegno in Florence and had international clientele. She specialized in painting pictures of strong and suffering women from myths, allegories, and the Bible – victims, suicides, warriors. Some of her best known themes are Susanna and the Elders (particularly the 1610 in Pommersfelden) and Judith Slaying Holofernes (most famous is her 1614-20 in Galleria degli Uffizi) and Judith and Her Maidservant (her version of 1625 at the Detroit Institute of Arts). She was known for being able to convincingly depict the female figure, anywhere be- tween nude and fully clothed. Artemisia was also famous for her skill and talent in handling color, both overall in the composition but also in building depth. That she was a woman painting in the seventeenth century and that she was raped as a young woman by Agostino Tassi and participated in the prosecution of her rapist long overshadowed her achievements as an artist. For many years she was regarded as a curi- osity. Today she is regarded as one of the most progressive and ex- pressive painters of her generation.”–LearnFromMasters

During her lifetime, Anguissciola was one of the most famous women in 
the Western world. Her fans included Michelangelo, Pope Pius IV, the 
Duke of Alba, and King Philip II of Spain, and her work influenced 
Van Dyck and Caravaggio. Yet, she faded into relative obscurity after
her death, her paintings attributed to male artists Alonso Sánchez 
Coello, Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, and even Greco.
