Artemisia Gentileschi, Hardback Book

Artemisia Gentileschi Hardback

Part of the Lives of the Artists series


Artemisia Gentileschi was the greatest female artist of the Baroque age and one of the most brilliant followers of the great Caravaggio.

As a young woman she was raped by her tutor, and then had to endure a seven-month-long trial during which she was brutally examined by the authorities.

Gentileschi was shamed in a culture where honour was everything.

Yet she went on to become one of the most sought-after artists of the seventeenth century.

Gentileschi's art communicated a powerful personal vision.

Like Frida Kahlo, Louise Bourgeois or Tracey Emin, she put her life into her art.
