Artemisia Gentileschi: The Image of the Female Hero in Italian Baroque Art

Artemisia Gentileschi: The Image of the Female Hero in Italian Baroque Art


Artemisia Gentileschi, widely regarded as the most important woman artist before the modern period, was a major Italian Baroque painter of the seventeenth century and the only female follower of Caravaggio.

This first full-length study of her life and work shows us that her powerfully original treatments of mythic-heroic female subjects depart radically from traditional interpretations of the same themes. Mary D. Garrard explores these interpretations and explains how Artemisia Gentileschi’s unique life made her one of the most interesting artists of her time.
