Notes

Summary:
Maria Anna Catharina Angelica Kauffmann is a painter in the early Neoclassical style best known for her decorative wall paintings for residences designed by Robert Adam. Her paintings are Rococo in tone and approach, though her figures are given Neoclassical poses and draperies. Kauffmann's portraits of female sitters are among her finest works..-- The Vestal Virgins were priestesses of the temple of Vesta (Greek Hestia), the Roman goddess of the fire that burns in the hearth. One of the Vestals' duties was to keep the altar fire in the temple burning perpetually. They were sworn to absolute chastity; breaking the vow was punished by burial alive.
