Francesca Woodman

Despite her short life, Francesca Woodman was an influential and important artist of the 20th century. She discovered photography at a very young age, developing her first photographs at the age of 13. Francesca Woodman grew up in an artistic family. Her father George was a painter and her mother Betty a ceramicist. She spent many years and many of her summer vacations in Florence, where she attended the second grade and took piano lessons. She appears in many of her photographs and her work focuses primarily on her body and its surroundings.
