Join us for Exploring the Work of Elisabetta Sirani, 17th Century Artist (Webinar) on Monday, April 12 at 11 AM.

Elisabetta Sirani was a Baroque artist of great talent and lasting influence, and a creator of beautiful paintings. This trailblazing 17th Century female artist created more than 200 religious and secular works in a career cut short by an early, unexplained death. Unlike many artists, she kept a list of her artwork, allowing us to be inspired and learn more about her work than many other artists. In fact, one of her paintings was the first by a female artist to be used on a U.S. postal stamp.

In this program presented by Leslie Tate Boles, an art instructor at Rollins College and former CHWB program presenter of “For the Love of Art – Exploring the Works of Lavinia Fontana,” you’ll explore the art and life of this Bolognese artist and how her artwork impacted many countries and artists, including English Romantic Poet Percy Shelley.

By participating in this program, you can expect to:

  • learn about the influence and life of Elisabetta Sirani.
  • gain awareness of the impact of women in the 17th Century — we often think they did not contribute as much as men.
  • learn how the Visual Arts impacts not just our visual pleasure, but the other forms of art and entertainment.

This program is presented by Leslie Tate Boles and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
