ARTEMISIA GENTILESCHI (1593–1654) is the most celebrated woman artist of the Italian baroque. Though widely admired during her lifetime, she fell into near oblivion in later eras as artistic tastes shifted from dramatic naturalism towards a more classicizing manner. Having been rediscovered some forty years ago, she is now enjoying a major revival. Art historian Aneta Georgievska-Shine looks closely at Artemisia's artistic and personal aspirations and accomplishments. Registration required.
