Project “Footeprint’ is inspired by the life of Eunice Foote (1819-1888) who discovered the heat-absorbing property of carbon dioxide and water vapor and she described and theorized the gradual warming of the Earth’s atmosphere in 1856 (!). She was the first to demonstrate what today we call the greenhouse effect.

These five women represent the five women organizing the first Woman's Rights Convention in Seneca Falls in 1848 where Eunice was involved. [/su_spoiler][su_spoiler title="ABOUT THE ARTIST" icon="arrow"]Jitske Schols (b. 1969) is a Dutch visual artist based in Amsterdam. She has a background in communications and combines her interest in people and their stories with her love for painting. In her work she focuses on telling lost or untold ‘herstories’ and often works on long-term projects where she thoroughly researches her subjects and in the process is inspired to create paintings that she uses to tell the stories of these women. Works by Schols are included in several corporate and museum collections.[/su_spoiler]
