Project Artemisia Banner

ARTEMISIA: Light and Shadow

ARTEK presents a one-woman multi-media show on the life of 17th-century painter and feminist heroine Artemisia Gentileschi.

A life more dramatic than an Italian opera: trained in art by her father, sexually assaulted as a teenager, Artemisia survived a sensational trial to become an internationally renowned painter, and the secret lover of a Florentine nobleman.
