Mrs Turner

Mrs. Turner (1612-1678)
The wife of a painter’s apprentice, she became the fixation and lover of many well-known artists and sculptures of her day. In fact, her derriere is said to grace many marble and bronze statues throughout the city of Kilsa – on the backsides of nymphs and goddesses – due to an extended affair with the noted sculptor Byramorri. He later conceded, “She broke my heart, and you never forget an ass like that”.
