The formidable life, work and legacy of Artemisia Gentileschi.

This is an online event hosted on the British Library platform. Bookers will be sent a link in advance giving access and will be able to watch at any time for 48 hours after the start time.

She was the first woman to be accepted into the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno in Florence, famous for her blistering works of biblical and mythological brilliance and sought after by the great and the good all across Europe. Bringing together leading thinkers in the world of art history and Renaissance Italy, we explore the formidable life, work and legacy of Artemisia Gentileschi. Hers is a story of fierce talent, singular ambition and the wider history of female artists.
