The MAS showcases the exceptional talent of an artist who became popular at a time when female artists were the exception rather than the rule. Her work is so varied and unique that it defies all imagination when it comes to art history.

Glass ceilings have been around for years: it was an almost impossible task to make a name as a female artist in the 17th century. Despite being a good match for her male counterparts, Michaelina's work still ended up being forgotten. We currently know of around thirty of her works. These bear witness to challenging topics and a superior pictorial technique. More information on the exhibition is available here.
