Socks by Ruysch
This pair of Painted Socks is inspired by one of the many colorful paintings made by the 17th-century painter Rachel Ruysch.
Rachel? Yes, indeed a woman painter—quite rare in the history of art as women were long denied access to art schools! Luckily Rachel Ruysch was able to break through. She had an open-minded father who pushed her to follow professional art education and her husband, a fellow painter, thought it was only natural she kept on painting.
And what a great example she is. She was not only extremely productive (and very successful) as a painter, but also had a family of 10 children.
