Women and Art
In second edition of Giorgio Vasari’s Le vite de'piu eccellenti pittori, scultori et
architettory, lives and works of many people are documented including several women like
Properzia De’ Rossi, Suor Plautilla, Lucrezia Quistelli and Sofonisba Anguissola and her sisters.
Anguissola accrued the most excellent legendary adoration because of her excellence in portrait
painting (Jacobs, 1994). Her name was later placed next to that of Titian as a skilled painter of
natural portraits. This made her famous, and she was later recognized and invited to the court of
Phillip to serve Elizabeth of Valois as a portrait painter and her maid. The fame that came with
this inspired renaissance painters to desire painting.
As the days passed, Anguissola was not the only woman with these qualities and values.
Other women were proclaimed Titian's equals and invited to the Spanish court. Their
characteristics might be the same but not quality of their work. Anguissola's work was described
as life-like quality, and her images were so alive, something that many other women could not do
(Jacobs, 1994). This life-infused image and women's ability to make living men became
controversial as other people did not quite find the relation between a woman's biological
capacity to make living men and her artistic ability to make man's likeness. Their argument was
based on the fact that out of the thirty-five creative women of praise, only Anguissola could
make these kinds of images and receive so much credit.
According to Aristotle, four interdependent causes are involved in the procreation
process: the formal cause, which gives form to the matter; the efficient cause, which is the
making of the matter; the telic cause or goal; and the material cause, which receives the matter.
These causes are identical to the ones in production, so reproduction and production are identical
to him. But of these four causes, three important ones, telic, formal, and efficient, are accredited
