Barbara Longhi (1552-1638) worked in her father’s studio, along with her brothers. Very little is known of her life, though she was esteemed as a portraitist in her lifetime. Most of her works were unsigned which makes it hard to positively attribute work to her and it is thought that much of her output has become subsumed under her father’s name.
