Lavinia Fontana
Italian painter, 1552-1614

Lavinia Fontana was the daughter of the School of Bologna painter Prospero Fontana, who trained Lavinia in painting.

Lavinia painted in many different genres. She worked with portraiture as well as with religious and mythological scenes, which included male and female nudes. She is documented to have painted over 100 works, though only 32 are definitely known today.
