Here’s a trio of women artists who may not be that well known but have left posterity with three memorable self-portraits, starting with German painter Louise Hollandine, (1622-1709) who was also a princess as well as an abbess.
Ludovike Simanowiz (1759-1827) was also a German painter, specializing in portraits. She had an eventful life, including escaping the French Revolution.
Daughter of an artist, Julie Hagen-Schwarz (1824-1902) was from Germany too and a successful portraitist. She married a astronomer, spending her honeymoon in Siberia.
