The Swiss artist Angelica Kauffmann , was one of the most important neoclassical painters. Although she became (1765) a member of the Accademia di San Luca, Kauffmann was not allowed to take part in the nude drawing classes because she was a woman. In 1766, Kauffmann traveled to England, where she became one of the founding members of the Royal Academy of Art and a close friend of Sir Joshua Reynolds. In Britain Kauffmann made a sizable income from the production of allegorical portraits as well as from her designs for the interiors of numerous houses. Kauffmann painted more than 500 paintings during her lifetime, including numerous self-portraits and history paintings.
