Both Polish artist Anna Bilinska-Bohdanowicz (1857-1893) and Swedish artist Elizabeth Keyser (1851-1898) have mastered the art of self portraiture, with an emphasis on the tools of their creativity.  Each woman was about 30 at the time, both living in the artistic epicenter of Paris where they could further their careers.
