Not the first name that comes to mind when thinking of 16th Century painters, but Anguissola was just as talented as her male contemporaries. Such was her talent that Philip II was her patron for 15 years and Van Dyck thought her important enough to paint her portrait. Linda Smith looks into the life and career of this often overlooked Renaissance painter.
