Watercolors and Paintings

She was one of the first still-life artist and was very successful with her works. Among her patrons duchs, duchesses and the mighty Medici family.

"One of Garzoni's earliest works, a 1625 calligraphy book, includes capital letters illuminated with fruits, flowers, birds, and insects. These subjects were to become her specialty, and tempera on vellum was her preferred medium."(source)

"At the age of twenty five she was already in Venice and worked in various other cities throughout her lifetime such as Naples and Turin. However, she spent her final years in Rome where she willed all her goods to the Accademia di San Luca. The Accademia holds several of her still lifes as well as a portrait of her." (Sotheby's catalogue)
