Biography Anna Maria Ehrenstrahl
Anna Maria Ehrenstrahl, also known by married name of Wattrang, (1666-1729), was a Swedish painter, the leading female painter in her country. She was a baroque-artist and painted allegorical works, portraits and group portraits in the style of the Baroque.
The daughter of the court painter David Klöcker Ehrenstrahl and Maria Momma, she was taught by her father to copy and finish his works and to paint details to complete the paintings in his studio. She is confirmed as her fathers assistant from ca 1680.
Her learning as an artist was therefore not complete, as he never intended her to become an independent artist, just as a form of artistic secretary in his studio, but she was in fact to create paintings herself eventually.<
