Francesca Woodman

Artist OTW

Advertisements

Francesca’s Woodman life is a tragic and sensational story. Daughter of two famous artists George Woodman a ceramist, painter and photographer, and Betty Woodman an internationally recognized ceramic artists. It is no surprise the Francesca became an artist with parents who were artists. The pressure must have been great for her to be recognized by her parents and the art community as an artist. Sadly this wasn’t the story of Francesca. She was raised to become an artist but only after her death did she receive the honor of being considered an artist. At the age of 22 she committed suicide, she jumped from a window to end her life. Her ghostly images almost speak to you from the grave.
