Angelica Kauffmann and Mary Moser in Henry Singleton’s The Royal Academicians in General Assembly (1795) (via Royal Academy of Arts)

From the museum website:

Behind President Benjamin West, to the left, are Angelica Kauffman and Mary Moser, the two founding women Academicians. They might be seen as relegated to the background but Elizabeth Eger says Singleton produced ‘a rare naturalistic portrayal of Kauffman and Moser, assured and at ease among their male contemporaries and set by the painter at the apex of the arrangement of figures.’ (Eger 2010 p.49) As women, Kauffman and Moser did not in fact attend meetings of the General Assembly, so would not have been present.

The paintings behind Kauffmann and Moser are Moser’s Spring and Summer
