    Judith Leyster Self-portrait
     
    A Dutch portrait artist ahead of her time in a male dominated seventeenth century, Judith Leyster used non-religious portraits in a unique form. She was motivated, strong, and creative. Many of her portraits were either accredited to her husband or Frans Hals. This changed one of her works was sold to the Louvre as a Frans Hals. She was talented in her use of brush strokes, light, and use of music in her imagery, many of her subjects portrayed almost candidly. Her subjects are strong and bold such as Judith. She persevered despite all of her setbacks and her strength can be seen throughout all of her works.
