Artemisia Gentileschi (Rome 1593-Naples 1652/53) was one of the few successful female painters of the Sixteenth century. She was adopted by the feminist movement as a standard-bearer and through a distorted psychoanalytic reading she was believed to be exacting her revenge through her cathartic brushstrokes, transforming herself into Judith slaying Holofernes/Agostino Tassi. Her paintings, along with those of her father were exhibited in Florence, Rome, New York and Saint Louis. The exhibition planned from September 2011 to January 2012 in Milan aims to, at last, make amends for the unfair favours attributed to her otherwise excellent father and will provide the visitor with each essential knot in the pictorial evolution of his vibrant and chameleon-like daughter. This book, along with the exhibition, will finally allow the reader and viewer to draw their own conclusion.
