This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Milan, Italy and living in New York City, Cristina Vergano does surrealist portraits of young women with sensuous bodies who have animal features incorporated into their images.  She has a Masters in Art History form the Universita di Genova, and much of her work is influenced by Renaissance painting.  "Text and image co-exist comfortably in singe continuous landscape spaces with the awkwardness of historicist pastiche.  And yet she has her own highly personal world view." (Leggio)

In 1997 and 1998, she was commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art in New York to design a line of household products to be sold in the MoMA store.
