Biographical/historical note Rosalba Carriera (1675-1757), a prominent Italian portrait artist, began her career painting miniatures on ivory for the lids of snuff boxes. She turned to portrait painting and became known for her exclusive use of pastels. Carriera was elected to the Academy of St. Luke in Rome, the Academy of Bologna, and the Florence Academy in 1705. Her work was in high demand, and she obtained commissions for hundreds of portraits of royalty, nobility, and diplomats in the courts of Italy, France, and Poland during the course of her career.
