Abstract:

"One of the most memorable creative personalities of the Baroque age and arguably the most forcefully expressive and influential woman painter in history, the Roman-born Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1652/3) has become the central figure in the recovery of the history of art produced by women. Applying a rigorous methodology, this profusely illustrated study with interpretative text and catalogue raisonne embeds Gentileschi's pictorially and emotionally compelling pictures within the actual sociocultural contexts in and for which they were created."--BOOK JACKET.
