Flourished 3rd century B.C., Sicyon, ancient Greece
Anaxandra was a Greek painter working in the 220s B.C., the daughter and disciple of Nealkes, a painter of mythological and genre scenes in Sicyon. She is mentioned by Clement of Alexandria, the second-century A.D. Christian theologian, in a section of his Stromateis (Miscellanies) entitled "Women as Well as Men Capable of Perfection." Clement cites a lost work of the Hellenistic scholar Didymus (first century B.C.) as his source.
