Banjo Recital (Martin, 2012) Emily Martin works mostly with acrylic paints. Her works often have a warm gold hue which creates a friendly soft aesthetic. She also has a soft method of blending and the transition of shadows and light is smooth, giving her paintings the aesthetic of a pantomime backdrop.
"Among the earliest strongwomen whose names have come down to us is the subject of this lithograph: Elise Serafin Luftmann. Apparently from a German-speaking region of Bohemia, she performed all over central Europe. Luftmann was famous for her ability to lift heavy weights and to juggle cannonballs. This illustration dates c. 1830." More "Venus with Biceps" women at the click
