Will we talk about three outstanding female painters of the 15th and 16th centuries: Fede Galizia (1578?-1630), milanese, admired by her contemporaries, charged for sacred painting commissions, a a unique case for those times. Sofonisba Anguissola (1532-1625) became the official portraitist of the Spanish Royal Family, and her sisters were also successful painters. The venetian Marietta Robusti, known as La Tintoretta (1554-1590), grew up in the workshop of the Renaissance master Jacopo Tintoretto; she too was called to paint for the Spanish court.
