The New York dealer Robert Simon has a new exhibition and catalogue of works entirely by women artists, from the Renaissance to the 20th Century, including a still-life by Fede Galizia (who, by the way, is responsible for the earliest signed and dated still-life in Italian art), and a Madonna & Child by Elisabetta Sirani (above).
