Biography   Josefa de Obidos

Josefa de Ayala, also known as Josefa de Óbidos, was celebrated in her own lifetime as an accomplished painter of both still lifes and religious subjects.  She was born in Seville, the daughter of the painter Baltazar Gomes Figueira, with whom she trained.  She came to Portugal in 1634 when her father returned with the family to his native country, settling in the town of Óbidos.

Josefa undertook religious training at the Augustinian convent of Santa Ana in Coimbra, though she did not ultimately take vows, and returned to Óbidos in 1653 where she earned her own living as a painter, receiving commissions mainly from religious institutions, but also producing works for private devotion.
