Artemisia by Anna Banti

Artemisia

 

Today, the only member of the great succession of European Old Masters, was a woman, Artemisia Gentileschi.  This book is an account of exemplary tribulations that followed from being independent, an artist and a woman in the 17th century.  At the centre of the book is Artemisia Gentileschi, a painter influenced by Michelangelo and Caravaggio. A rising star in 17th-century Naples, Artemisia realises that success has been bought at too high a price – she has failed as a woman, a wife and a mother. Anna Banti’s ‘Artemisia’ is an important reflection on art, femininity and the creative experience.
