A new exhibition opened in Germany last month dedicated to Ingenious Women. Women Artists and their Companions. The show, which is being housed at the Bucerius Kunst Forum in Hamburg until 28th January 2024, will then travel to the Kunstmuseum in Basel in the spring.

According to the blurb on the website:

 The exhibition presents around 30 women artists and 150 works, by artists including works by Sofonisba Anguissola, Judith Leyster, Marietta Robusti (Tintoretto's daughter) and Angelika Kauffmann. Masterful portraits, still lifes and historical scenes in painting, drawing and prints from all over Europe, ranging from the Renaissance and Baroque periods to early Neoclassicism will be brought together in Hamburg. For the first time, works by women artists will be juxtaposed with those of their male colleagues in such a pointed way that both formal and stylistic similarities and differences will come to the fore.
