In the spring of 2017, Carla van de Puttelaar developed a new and timely series devoted to prominent and promising women in the art world, Artfully Dressed: Women in the Art World.
While working on this ongoing project, Van de Puttelaar became even more impressed by the personalities and achievements of these women. United in their brilliance and strength, they represent a wide range of backgrounds, nationalities, careers, age and expertise. The women are dressed in amazing quality clothes by top designers, in period costumes or vintage clothes, or wrapped in stunning and luxurious fabrics.
To date, over 400 women worldwide have participated in Van de Puttelaar’s project,and the series continues to grow and has become an important document of the present time of women in the art world.
