Angelica Kauffmann was born in Switzerland and studied painting in Florence and Rome, before being introduced to London society by Lady Wentworth, whom she met in Venice. At the same time, Kauffmann made the acquaintance of the celebrated painter, Joshua Reynolds, who was to prove a loyal supporter and friend, helping her to secure important commissions and ensuring that she was one of the 34 founder members of the Royal Academy in 1768.
