    Luisa Ignacia Roldán, better known as La Roldana, was the Sevillian sculptor who managed to be the first woman recognized as such and make a place among the best of her time. At the height of the Baroque, she became a sculptor at the court of Charles II and the first Bourbon on the Spanish throne, Philip V, thanks to her work and talent, and earned her living with a profession with which few women had done before. The issuance of this stamp is included in the series Characters in Art .

    Born on September 8, 1652 in Seville, La Roldana learned the trade in the workshop of her father, Pedro Roldán, a renowned sculptor from the Andalusian capital . Since the business received a large number of commissions, most of the couple's twelve children worked in it. A place that was meant to completely determine the young woman's life. Luisa Ignacia was the one who got the most out of this learning; He absorbed all the details of his father's techniques and the pso in practice in many of the commissions . Despite the fact that there are no documents thatEndorse, many studies attribute some works of this time produced in the workshop to the sculptor. It was also in her father's workshop that she met Luis Antonio de los Arcos, who would become her husband, against the family's opinion. The event is known as the Rapture of the Roldana. Since a woman was to remain under male guardianship, she left her home backed by a court order and spent several days in the custody of another man until the marriage was celebrated, which took place on December 25, 1671 in the absence of the father of the bride.

    Her professional career independent of the family nucleus also began in Seville with her husband, with whom she worked side by side forming a team and producing a large number of works to satisfy the commissions of convents and brotherhoods. The couple carved out a niche for themselves in the art scene and soon commissions began to arrive from outside the city. The Ecce Homo (1684) of the Cathedral of Cádiz, where the couple resided for a time, is the first officially documented work of the Roldana .

    This figure brings together some of the peculiarities of this stage of the sculptor, such as the dramatic realism that reflects the face of Jesus, the detail in the making of the clothes and the care in the size of the hair, all of them learned in the workshop of her father. Other works such as the Sorrowful of Solitude (1688), Saint Joseph with the Child and Saint John the Baptist or the group of the Holy Family belong to the same period.

    With El descanso de la huída de Egipto (1691), Luisa Ignacia inaugurates her Madrid stage. With the intention of taking advantage of the fame that had been carved out so far, the couple settled in Madrid with the dream of working for the court. An aspiration that came true, because in 1692 the Roldana achieved what no woman had achieved until then, to be appointed chamber sculptor of the royal court, a position she obtained under the reign of Carlos II and that she maintained with the arrival of the Bourbons to the Spanish monarchy with Felipe V. It was commissioned by the first monarch when he made one of his most recognized works, the San Miguel de El Escorial, a beautiful wood carving that represents the victory of the archangel over the devil.

    Even so, the Sevillian sculptor and her husband never enjoyed a good economic position. Artistic maturityde la Roldana exploded just in this period, in whose works the basic teachings of his father are still perceived, to which are added a dynamism emphasized by the humanization of the characters represented, a softer and fleshier modeling of the figures and a growing concern for the representation of the feminine, maternal and infantile aspects.

    Luisa Ignacia thus approached the canon of the time. All his production is associated with religious themes represented from a baroque aesthetic and adapted to the new guidelines coming out of the Council of Trent (1545-1563) which, to face the Protestant Reformation, preferred a humanized art that brought religion closer to the people. Something that the Roldana achieved by attributing a great expressiveness and drama to her works.

    The little documentation about her leaves in the shadow many stages of her life, such as the closest to her death, which took place on January 10, 1706. It happened a few days after signing a declaration of poverty, because despite her professional success, economic hardships never abandoned this pioneer who overcame all the difficulties to dedicate herself to what she knew best: art.

    All the stamps of the #8MTodoElAño series have been designed by the artist Isa Muguruza, a Spanish illustrator capable of creating a unique universe that empowers, through art, the figure of women; An ode to energy and the female body represented through a style that mixes realism, psychedelia and the metaphysical.
