Exhibition Catalogue Angelica Kauffman, presented at the Royal Academy of Arts, London (1st March - 30 June 2024).

Known for her celebrity portraits and pioneering history paintings, Angelica Kauffman helped to shape the direction of European art. She painted some of the most influential figures of her day – queens, countesses, actors and socialites – and she reinvented the genre of history painting by focusing largely on female protagonists from classical history and mythology.

This exhibition covers Kauffman’s life and work: her rise to fame in London, her role as a founding member of the Royal Academy and her later career in Rome where her studio became a hub for the city’s cultural life.

Her extraordinary life and work are beautifully presented in this handsome volume, which contains her finest paintings and drawings.
