Considered a child prodigy at the age of ten - or better “a wunderkind” - Angelica Kaufmann was one of the most famous artists of the 18th century, a talented portraitist and painter of historical subjects who, born in Switzerland, achieved fame living between Rome and London, places where she had great success. A woman whom the German poet Winkelmann describes thus in a letter from 1764 "she speaks Italian and German very well... and French and English fluently. She can be called beautiful and she competes in singing with our best virtuosos. Her name is Angelica Kauffmann”. This exhibition traces the life and work of Kauffman, the "most cultured woman in Europe". An exhibition that recounts her rise to fame in London, her role as a founding member of the Royal Academy - the only woman together with Mary Moser in an assembly that brought together 34 male artists - and her subsequent career in Rome, where her studio became a hub of the cultural life of the Eternal City. When she died in 1807 at just 66 years old she was honored with splendid funerals conducted by her dear friend, the sculptor Antonio Canova. The entire Academy of San Luca, with numerous ecclesiastics and virtuosos, followed her to her tomb in the Church of Sant'Andrea delle Fratte where she wanted to be buried alongside her husband, the Venetian painter Antonio Zucchi, although she had had the right to the burial at the Pantheon. “I want to live after death - Kaufmann wrote in her last will - next to the man with whom I enjoyed such an agreement."
