NEW Though female artists were not common in her day, Artemisia Gentileschi has long been recognized as one of Caravaggio's most talented followers. With her biography including rape by a fellow artist followed by a well-documented trial, she has been the subject of novels, drama and film. Gentileschi is known today for her powerful images of women from religion, mythology, and ancient history. This illustrated lecture will explore a selection of Gentileschi's paintings.
