Artemisia Gentileschi and Feminism in Early Modern Europe, Paperback / softback Book

Artemisia Gentileschi and Feminism in Early Modern Europe Paperback / softback

Part of the Renaissance Lives series

Paperback / softback


Artemisia Gentileschi is by far the most famous woman artist of the pre-modern era.

Her art addresses issues that resonate today, such as sexual violence and women's problematic access to political power.

Her forceful paintings with their vigorous female protagonists have excited modern audiences, especially feminists. This book breaks new ground by placing the artist in the context of women's political history, and the feminist protest that was bubbling in early modern Europe.

Mary D. Garrard discusses recently discovered paintings, offers fresh perspectives on known works and examines the artist anew in the context of early modern feminism.

This beautifully illustrated book, now in paperback, gives a full portrait of a strong woman and a great artist who fought back through her art.
