12 Powerful Women Throughout History – Alexia Sinclair

 

Marie Antoinette (The Extravagant Queen)

It’s pretty impressive how Australian photographer and digital artist Alexia Sinclair is able to balance the beauty of fine art, history, and modern art techniques. “The Regal Twelve” series is a suite of pictures depicting powerful historical women combining photography, illustration, European backdrops, fashion models, historical treasures and symbolic references, digitally montaged to create works based on historical truths.
