3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Artemisia was born in 1593 in Rome, the daughter of Orazio Gentileschi, an excellent painter and famous, passed by the same fame and daughter in the same passion for painting: the story of a woman and an artist is collected in a monograph, published from 24 HOURS Culture - Artemisia had to wait more than three centuries recognized by posterity to see its status as art. The expressive power of his pictorial language and interest in the artistic figure of Artemisia were read and used also in a feminist, but this continued to overshadow his painting awards. Only in 1991, is an exhibition in the Casa Buonarroti in Florence, exclusively focused on cabinet pictures. Ten years later, Rome, New York and St. Louis cekebrano the Gentileschi father and daughter but the part dedicated to Artemisia is always partial and fails to give an adequate picture of this brave artist and complete. With this volume - and the accompanying exhibition, curated by Roberto Contini and Francesco Solinas and with the staging of the record Emma Dante - aims to heal the favors bestowed on the otherwise excellent parent, allowing the reader to discover any essential node of painting Artemisia. For the first time, an event that gives space not only to his paintings from a room but all its production, showing a complete artist who knew how to deal with great quality, a range of pictorial genres and themes very wide and varied. The catalog texts by Roberto Paolo Ciardi, Roberto Contini, Mina Gregori, Rodolfo Maffeis, Judy W. Mann, Renato Ruotolo and Francesco Solinas. Biographies and critical Michele Nicolaci Primarosa and Yuri. The book accompanying the exhibition held in Palazzo Reale from 22 September 2011 to 29 January 2012, curated by Roberto Contini and Francesco Solinas with the valuable contribution to the preparation of Emma Dante."--Publisher's website

Artemisia, 1593-1654 [pouvoir, gloire et passions d'une femme peintre] : [exposition, Paris, Fondation Dina Vierny-Musée Maillol,14 mars-15 juillet 2012 by Fondation Dina Vierny-Musée Maillol( Book )

11 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catalogue de l'exposition présentée au Musée Maillol à Paris du 14 mars au 15 juillet 2012. À l'aube du XVIIe siècle en Italie, quand les femmes étaient mineures à vie, quand elles appartenaient à leur père, à leur mari, à leurs frères ou à leurs fils, Artemisia a brisé toutes les lois de la société en n'appartenant qu'à son art. En quête de sa propre gloire et de sa liberté, elle a travaillé pour des princes et des cardinaux, elle a gagné sa vie à la force de son pinceau, et construit son oeuvre, inlassablement. Par son talent et sa force créatrice, elle est devenue l'un des peintres les plus célèbres de son époque. Le drame de sa vie personnelle, le viol qu'elle a subi dans sa jeunesse, et le retentissant procès que son père intentera par la suite à son agresseur, l'artiste Agostino Tassi, ont profondément marqué sa vie et sa carrière. Ce scandale a contribué à occulter son génie
