Self Portrait of Missy van Harrier

artismw

This is the earliest painting by a known female painter.  It is certainly wonderful to have an opportunity to enjoy this bowtiful painting.  The young Missy  Harrier was a brave doggie indeed to paint a portrait of herself.  Usually young females painted under their father’s names so that their work would be accepted.  I hope that you join in with a barking salute to this brave artist.

Dr. Theodore Bear
