Artemisia Gentileschi was the most celebrated female painter of the 17th century, yet her name was all but lost for centuries. Attacked at just seventeen, publicly shamed and tortured to prove her truth, Gentileschi continues to fight for her art and the freedom to make it on her own terms. She painted women from history, myth, and religion as the protagonists of their stories. Her work is bold in every way.
Gunderson’s Artemisia is a work of humor and warmth that celebrates the courage, artistry, and humanity of a woman
who attacked the glass ceiling with every brush stroke.
