Artemisia Gentileschi is probably the most celebrated female artist of the 17th century. As the only daughter of Orazio Gentileschi, her affinity for art was in her genes. Gentileschi spent a large part of her career in Italy, Spain and London. The main theme of her works: the woman as a strong heroine. Many of her paintings deal with the role of women in mythology, religion and poetry. Taboo topics such as suicide and violence also play a role. Often it is the woman who stands out as the victor or fighter - as in one of her most famous works "Judith and Holofernes" (ca.1620).
Br/> Gentileschi's career was initially overshadowed by the lengthy process following a rape by the painter and colleague of her father, Agostino Tassi. This pain is clearly expressed in many of her works and gives especially the depicted women an expressive multi-dimensionality. The trial, which according to sources must have taken place in 1612/13, was known to many and was meticulously recorded. After various procedures in which the artist herself had to prove that she was not a prostitute, Tassi was found guilty and arrested. After the trial, Gentileschi met the artist Pierantonio di Vincenzo Stiattesi, who was rather unknown at the time and whom she married in Florence. Together they had 4 children. The move to Florence soon proved to be a successful project and she managed to restore her reputation, which had been damaged by the trial. In Florence, she was finally the first woman to be admitted to the Accademia del Disegno, thus paving the way for aspiring female artists. She succeeded in establishing important contacts and soon became known to important members of the Florentine upper class. Gentileschi produced several works for the Medici, who quickly became enthusiastic supporters of her art. Galileo Galilei and Cristofano Allori were also among her circle of confidants. In the 1630s, Gentileschi moved to London, where her father was employed as a painter at the court of Charles I. She supported him in some major projects until his death in 1637, after which she returned to Naples, where she died in 1652/53.

Artemisia Gentileschi's works stand out above all for their naturalistic depiction of the female form and her use of colour as a dramaturgical tool. Light and shadow are important elements in her paintings and give the works a unique aura. Especially her father, Orazio Gentileschi, and Caravaggio exerted a great influence on the artist, which is expressed above all in her love of precision. The high materiality of the painted clothes, including drapery, is typical of the artist. Artemisia Gentileschi succeeded in asserting herself in a field that was particularly dominated by men in her time. Even her own workshop employed mainly male workers. Gentileschi demonstrated courage and energy - values that are reflected in her art. © Meisterdrucke
