Erased:Redrawn. Piattoli

Charcoal, eraser on paper
Anna Bacherini Piattoli (1720-1788) was trained in a female painting school in Florence. She married a painter and painted religious subjects as well as portraits, combining the two genres. Though little is known about the artist herself, several of her paintings are in the Florentine collections, including this self-portrait that currently hangs in the Vasari Portrait Corridor of the Uffizi Gallery.
