Lives of Artists Artemisia Gentileschi
Artemisia Gentileschi is today known as perhaps the most influential female artist of the Baroque era, yet she faced great adversity during her life and career. This book by art critic Jonathon Jones takes us on a journey through the trauma and triumphs of the great 17th-century painter.
At the age of seventeen, she was the victim of abuse, and faced a harsh examination from authorities during a seven month trial.
Despite this, she went on to become one of the most acclaimed artists of the 17th-century. A follower of Caravaggio, Gentileschi’s powerful work painted women, not with the stereotypical feminine traits of the time, but as rebellious and courageous personalities, cementing her position as one of the Old Masters.
