DiGiuseppe researches and writes about Sofonisba Anguissola (c. 1535-1625), a painter from Italy’s Lombard region who painted the Medici court, traveled throughout the Mediterranean, was mentored by Michelangelo, and praised by Vasari. Anguissola also mentored painters Rubens and van Dyck and is a powerful influence for generations of artists.
