An extremely gifted painter, who lived in the violent underbelly of seventeenth-century Rome, travelled extensively through the Italian peninsula, and created stunning works of art which are now in the collections of the most important museums in the world. We are not talking of the notoriously famous painter (and murderer) Caravaggio, but of his younger contemporary Artemisia Gentileschi. Claudia Daniotti will guide us through the life and work of the most celebrated female artist of the seventeenth century, whose personality has recently been brought into focus as never before thanks to new research and a dazzling exhibition held at the National Gallery last year.
