My friends at DailyArt Magazine jut published this article that I wrote about Cecilia Beaux, an American portrait painter. In addition to being hired to paint rich and influential Americans, Beaux was also the first woman to become a full time faculty member at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Her story is so empowering. Check it out!

If you enjoy impressive female portraitists, Daily Art’s app also posted my piece about Anna Dorothea Therbusch’s Self-Portrait with Monocle earlier this month. Download the app to read it along with all the rest of Daily Art’s great content.
