Every week a female Portrait

Sabine Lepsius (1864–1942) was a German portrait painter. Her salon in Berlin-Westend was considered a major social gathering point. She was one of the founding members of the Berlin Secession and exhibited with them until 1913. Most of her approximately 280 portraits were of people in the Jewish community and were lost or destroyed during World War II. (Wikipedia)

As Women are mostly overseen, ignored or written out of history, it’s time we look into their work!
For this series we recommend the book ‘Seeing Ourselves: Women’s Self-Portraits’ (2016) by Frances Borzello.
