Artemisia Gentileschi and Feminism in Early Modern Europe – Mary D. Garrard (Professor Emerita, American University Washington DC) in conversation with Beverley Brown (Warburg Institute) and François Quiviger (Warburg Institute)

Artemisia Gentileschi is by far the most famous woman artist of the pre-modern era. Her art addresses issues that resonate today, such as sexual violence and women’s problematic access to political power. Her forceful paintings with their vigorous female protagonists have excited modern audiences.

This book breaks new ground by placing the artist in the context of women’s political history, and the feminist protest that was bubbling in early modern Europe. Mary D. Garrard shows that Artemisia most likely knew or knew about contemporary feminist writers such as the Venetians Lucrezia Marinella and Arcangela Tarabotti, and the alignment of her art with their texts is striking. Garrard discusses recently discovered paintings, offers fresh perspectives on known works and examines the artist anew in the context of early modern feminism.

This beautifully illustrated book gives a full portrait of a strong woman and a great artist who fought back through her art.

Renaissance Lives is a series of biographies published by Reaktion Books(Opens in new window) as well as a series of conversations discussing the ways in which individuals transmitted or changed the lives of traditions, ideas and images.
