A brand new look at the extraordinary accomplishments of early modern Italian women artists

This generously illustrated volume surveys a sweeping range of early modern Italian women artists, exploring their practice and paths to success within the male-dominated art world of the period. New attention to archival documents and detailed technical analyses of the beautiful paintings featured here—ranging from historical subjects to portraits and still lifes—offer new insight into the ways these women worked and their accomplishments. Essays and catalogue entries by an international team of distinguished art historians examine the works of Artemisia Gentileschi, Sofonisba Anguissola, Lavinia Fontana, Fede Galizia, Elisabetta Sirani, Giovanna Garzoni, Rosalba Carriera, and other less known Italian women artists. Through these works of art in diverse media—from paintings to prints—the fascinating stories of early modern Italian women artists are revealed.

MEDIA REVIEWS

“The book is uniquely conscious of its place in the historiography of the subject, avoiding essentialist claims.”—Jesse Locker, Art Newspaper“Among numerous works in By Her Hand that have never been exhibited before, a set of four large pastels by Rosalba Carriera is outstanding. . . . Oliver Tostmann provides an excellent discussion of the set, focusing on their iconography.”—Richard E. Spear, Kunst Chronik“Overall, the catalogue and exhibition is a balanced overview of women artists in Italy in the pre-modern era. Some of the art is wonderful and the texts provide a survey of the achievements of Italian women artists.”—Alexander Adams Art
