From 25 January to 1 February 2019 Sotheby’s New York presents the project Artfully Dressed: Women in the Art World by Dutch photographer Carla van de Puttelaar. The series is devoted to accomplished women in the art world.
While working on this ongoing project, Van de Puttelaar became very impressed by the personalities and achievements of these women, that represent a wide range of backgrounds, nationalities, careers, and expertise. To date, over 200 women worldwide have participated in Van de Puttelaar’s project.
The globally recognized series draws inspiration from Old Masters and specifically 17th century portraiture. In addition to the existing works, the auction house commissioned a continuation of the series featuring prominent American women.
