Beginning in the spring of 2017, Dutch photographer Carla van de Puttelaar began work on a new and timely portraiture series devoted to highlighting prominent and promising women in the international art world. Artfully Dressed: Women in the Art World is the profound culmination of these ongoing efforts.
 
Bringing together a powerful group of over 250 women, this vibrant collection of portraits unites these women in their brilliance and strength. Together they represent a wide range of backgrounds, nationalities, careers, ages, and expertise. Whether graced in the haute couture traditions of the world’s top designers, donned in ornate and billowing period costumes, dressed in seemingly outmoded vintage garments, or wrapped in almost otherworldly, luxurious materials, this book showcases a global ensemble of dynamic art-world women, illuminating and complimenting their achievements and wildly distinct personalities, all by framing them in fabric.
 
Informed by the high contrast, chiaroscuro-like technique of her own past studio projects, van de Puttelaar’s series is an important document of the present time of women in the art world.
