Lecture: Artemisia Gentileschi: The Fortunes of a Female Painter in Baroque Italy
Jesse Locker, Associate Professor of Art History, Portland State University
Artemisia Gentileschi (1593–ca. 1656) is a rare example of a successful, independent female artist in the rough-and-tumble world of 17th-century Italy, best known for her sometimes shocking portrayals of powerful biblical and mythological heroines. This talk explores recent scholarship, newly discovered works by the artist, and corresponds to the Museum’s display of Gentileschi’s painting Death of Cleopatra.Purchase tickets
