Lorna Tagle Margate
Probably one of the most versatile lady artists of this generation, Lorna Tagle Margate has taken whimsical arts to another level. With her talent, she has been compared to Artemisia Lomi or Artemisia Gentileschi, the Italian Baroque painter, who is one of the most famous portrait artists of that era. Initially working in the style of Caravaggio, Gentileschi is considered among the most accomplished seventeenth-century artists; she was producing professional work at an early age.
During the time that women had few opportunities to pursue artistic training or work as a professional artist, Artemisia was the first woman to become a member of the Accademia di Arte del Disegno. Many of Gentileschi’s paintings feature women from myths, allegories, and the Bible, including victims and warriors.
On the other hand, El Tagle Margate is such an accomplished portrait artist, she is also an accomplished whimsical artist, which made her one of the most sought-out artists in this genre. Viewers are amazed at her versatility with heavily textured works, everyone takes a second glimpse and if genuinely fascinated. With numerous exhibitions under her belt, Margate is going places.
