Recycling in the working process of Angelica Kauffman
A few years ago Bettina Baumgärtel discovered two new bust portraits painted by Angelica Kauffman as preparatory works for the family portrait of Princess Catherine Bariantinskaya and the Polish Chancellor Jerome Andrzej Tamoyski. They will be shown for the first time in the summer exhibition To Italy! Angelica Kauffman and the Grand Tour at the Angelika Kauffmann Museum in Schwarzenberg (Austria, 22th May – 31st October 2021). In her essay “…See Angelica Kauffman and admire her works…”, Baumgärtel develops new exciting theses on the recycling of such and other works within the artist’s working process.
