Women In Art – Juana Romani

Juana Romani (born Carolina Carlesimo, 30 April 1867) was an Italian painter known for her realism and unique sense of style. She settled in the Latin Quarter, Paris around age ten with her mother and stepfather, Temistocle Romani, which allowed Juana opportunities to work at several art schools as a model to various artists. This continued till the day Filippo Colarossi, founder of the Académie Colarossi, invited her to study at the school which in turn lead to her posing for “Diana the Huntress”, a well-known sculpture/statue by Alexandre Falguiere.
