This chapter discusses the life and works of Angelica Kauffman, one of the most popular artists in Rome at the end of the eighteenth century, who enjoyed her first success as a history painter in Rome, where she lived and worked almost continuously. It considers her place in Rome by focusing on her literal location—the house in which she lived and worked—as well as her symbolic place, especially in regard to her gender, within the history of art in that city.

Keywords:   Angelica Kauffman, Rome, history painter, art, gender
