Arts Everyday Living: Through the Eyes of Women Artists–the Many Moods of Self-Portraits

Alina Bondy Glassova, Self Portrait, c. 1890s, pastel on cardboard, Private Collection?


I am always amazed by the number of women artists who were creating in the latter part of the 19th and early 20th centuries.  Polish painter Alina Bondy Glassova (1865-1935) and her Finnish contemporary Dora Wahlroos (1870-1947) besides producing  a body of artistic work, also have left posterity revealing and insightful images of themselves.
