2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first comprehensive examination of Gentileschi's art and its pan-European influence, this interpretive study reveals how his art responded to changing artistic tastes and sociocultural influences and dispels the myth that his exquisite paintings came only from "the tip of his brush." It does so by addressing his deliberate stylistic/expressive decisions in considering subject matter, didactic function, scale, medium, physical location, and patronage. Orazio Gentileschi is presented here as the foremost painter among Caravaggio's Roman "followers," and one of the great Italian painters of the seventeenth century. Much of the text is built around events in Gentileschi's personal life--the departure from Rome of Caravaggio (under indictment for murder); the trial of Agostino Tassi (also a painter) for the rape of Orazio's daughter, Artemisia (a well known artist in her own right); a call to France by Marie de'Medici; an invitation to England from the Duke of Buckingham and King Charles I (where he became an official court painter)--since it was by them, above all, that his career was shaped. The book includes a lengthy Catalogue Raisonne encompassing autograph works, lost works, questionable attributions, and incorrect attributions; appendices summarizing over 100 documents (many not previously cited) concerning Orazio's life and work; and an extensive collection of photographs showing all of Gentileschi's preserved works (canvases, panels, frescoes, mosaics) plus a considerable number of "doubtful" and comparative paintings. Reviewers have commented that "Bissell . . . has made recent important archival discoveries"; that "never before have Orazio Gentileschi's work been approached on a comparable level.""--Publisher's description

Orazio Gentileschi, padre della più famosa pittrice, è un pittore di livello internazionale e caravaggesco sui generis. Fiorentino-pisano (Pisa 1562-Londra 1640), formato a Roma, dopo un primo apprendistato presso la bottega di famiglia a Pisa, per complesse vicissitudini si sposta tra città italiane ed europee, da Roma a Genova a Parigi sino a Londra, diventando uno dei maggiori pittori della corte inglese, in competizione con artisti stranieri di spicco. Di carattere difficile, aspro e scontroso, immortala a Roma i personaggi che ruotano intorno al suo atelier, sarte, scalpellini, barbieri e pellegrini. Lavora per committenti di prestigio, nobili e antiche famiglie, sino al trasferimento presso la regina di Francia e poi presso il re di Inghilterra, dove realizza opere raffinate, intrise di luce. Il libro, prima monografia italiana sul Gentileschi, traccia e ricostruisce tutte le tappe della vita e dell'attività, con importanti novità documentarie, dalla formazione, sinora oscura, all'attività nei cantieri romani a contatto con un mondo stimolante e cosmopolita. Dalla conoscenza di Caravaggio, che rivoluziona la sua pittura tardo-manieristica, alle esperienze genovesi, confermate da lettere e carteggi. Dall'enigmatico e difficile soggiorno francese, a quello londinese, più lungo e tormentato per la concorrenza di artisti come Rubens e Van Dyck sino all'inedito ruolo di agente segreto del re

The model for this quiet painting may have been the painter's daughter, who appears several times in her father's works. This work is bathed in a greenish light reflected from the tablecovering that takes up much of the central ground. Gentileschi was interested in detail as is evident here is his careful treatment of instruments, braided hair, and costume touches
