Women of the World Boxed Notecards
20 Cards with Envelopes
4 each of 5 images
The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts features art by or about women from cultures around the world. This set of cards includes a funerary (mummy) portrait of a young woman from fourth century Egypt and a German artist's fashionable portrait of a baroness of Swedish and Russian descent. Private moments in women's lives are represented in a European history painting of a Roman mother and her beloved children and in scenes of English ladies in a music room and peasant women in the French countryside, both painted by American artists. Formal or intimate, these images document the lives of women through the ages.
