I love this piece so much! For some reason, this is the one painting in the series that I danced with the most, weeks on end. I kept doing the easel to mirror hustle, back and forth, changing this then that, until I got it just right! She’s up in my Saatchi portfolio ready to go from my studio to your wall! Click the link below to make this bride and her inspiring story yours.
Agnodice is the first historical midwife of Athens. She had to practice medicine disguised as a man and was so good she took business away from other doctors. I guess way back then, just like now, some women prefer a female doctor…like I do!
When her true gender was discovered, Agnodice was taken to court. Her rivals wanted her in prison which was even more serious then than now, but Agnodice’s trial divided the city. Women protested and refused to go to the men doctors. Mayhem ensued. Anyways, she was released!
Painted in my signature Cubism 3.0 style that blends Analytic and Synthetic Cubism with Feminism and Pop.
I am an award-winning artist with pieces in museums, but my paintings are affordable art. Perfect gift for her, for the new homeowner or new collector. Of course, the best gifts for the bride are celebratory paintings!
If you love classical art, if you love European easel painting, this series is for you.
Please share this post with any hard-working woman in the medical profession. She will like to know about Agnodice, how she rose above the restrictions of her age to become the most celebrated midwife (obstetrician?) of the 4th c BCE.
