Claricia’s Medieval Selfie
Claricia was a German illuminator who included a self-portrait in a South German psalter produced circa 1200 CE.
In the self-portrait, she depicts herself swinging from the tail of a letter Q with her name inscribed over her head. Her uncovered head, braided hair, and style of dress (close-fitting tunic, long-waisted dress, long flowing sleeves) suggests that she was a lay student at the convent.
