Daphne Maugham (1897-1982) , later Casorati, was an established artist when she married Felice Casorati. Even so, her work has suffered from the informal 'one to a family' rule for creative couples that has operated to the disadvantage of women. Contemporaries commented that she was quiet and often overshadowed in Casorati's circle.
