Giovanna Garzoni was an Italian painter of the Baroque era. She was unusual for Italian artists of the time because she was a women who painted portrait miniatures for her aristocratic patrons in Rome, Venice, Florence, Naples, & Turin; but her favorite subject was luscious still-lifes of fruits, vegetables, & flowers. In 1666, Garzoni bequeathed her entire estate to the Roman painters' guild the Accademia di San Luca, on condition that they build her tomb in their church of Santi Luca e Martina.
