Johanna van Koerten

Probably even less commonly known than Gesina ter Borch and Rachel Ruysch is Johanna van Koerten. 

I hope to see one of her works in real life soon to get an idea of the precair paper cuttings she made. 

And it is also amazing that her name is so unknown even if her work was valued during her lifetime and sold well. This is a clear example again of structural exclusion of history making.
