Documents the first exhibition devoted exclusively to the distinctive oeuvre of Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1652/3), a major Caravaggesque painter noted for her gruesomely naturalistic renderings of biblical and other narratives featuring female protagonists. Focused on works produced during the artist's years in Rome and Florence, the scholarly catalogue features excellent reproductions of 27 paintings (including several canvases by Artemisia's father Orazio) accompanied by extensive explications and illustrations of details and related works. Three substantial essays discuss the painter's career in Rome, Florence and Naples while two additional texts examine the influence of Caravaggio and Artemisia on Florentine art.
