I Know What I Am: The Life and Times of Artemisia Gentileschi

I Know What I Am: The Life and Times of Artemisia Gentileschi


Artemisia Gentileschi was one of the greatest artists of the Baroque period, rising through hardship and trauma to become one of the most sought-after painters in 17th-century Italy. This graphic biography by Gina Siciliano tells her story in a new and fascinating way.

As a seventeen-year-old in Rome, Gentileschi suffered abuse, and was left shamed by Roman society. This didn’t stop her from going on to become a groundbreaking artist, and her anguish and frustrations can be seen in her powerful paintings featuring women.

Her defiance of hypocritical social mores is just as relevant today. Rendered in ballpoint pen, I Know What I Am is part art-history and part coming-of-age story of a woman who defied the odds and is widely regarded as one of history’s great feminist icons.
