Life Long Learning: Artemisia Gentileschi: The Spirit of Caesar in the Soul of a Woman
Artemisia Gentileschi was the most famous female painter of the 17th Century. Although trained by her father, she went on to have a successful, independent career, only to fall into obscurity after her death in 1656. She did astonishing work, mostly portraying courageous and rebellious female protagonists. Come and hear what inspired her— her story is as dramatic and powerful today as it was 400 years ago.
