Hailed as one of the most influential and expressive painters of the seventeenth century, Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-ca. 1656) has figured prominently in the art historical discourse of the past two decades. This attention to Artemisia, after many years of scholarly neglect, is partially due to interest in the dramatic details of her early life, including the widely publicized rape trial of her painting tutor, Agostino Tassi, and her admission to Florence's esteemed Accademia del Disegno. While the artist's early paintings have been extensively discussed, her later work has been largely dismissed. This beautifully illustrated and elegantly written book provides a revolutionary look at Artemisia's later career, refuting longstanding assumptions about the artist. The fact that she was semi-illiterate has erroneously led scholars to assume a lack of literary and cultural education on her part. Stressing the importance of orality in Baroque culture and in Artemisia's paintings, Locker argues for her important place in the cultural dialogue of the seventeenth century.

One of the most memorable creative personalities of the Baroque age and arguably the most forcefully expressive and influential woman painter in history, the Roman-born Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1652/3) has become the central figure in the recovery of the history of art produced by women. Applying a rigorous methodology, this profusely illustrated study with interpretative text and catalogue raisonné embeds Gentileschi's pictorially and emotionally compelling pictures within the actual sociocultural contexts in and for which they were created. The interpretive text analyzes key pictures and primary literary evidence to reveal the sweep of Artemisia's oeuvre, chart her travels, define her standing with artists and patrons of the period, investigate the links between her financial situations and the artistic decisions that she made, and assess the validity of proposals regarding her activity as a still-life painter, her access to professional organizations, her level of literacy, and the nature of her subject matter. Exploring the question of the interrelationships among Gentileschi's gender and experiences as a woman, the state of her psyche, and her art, the text also confronts--and often challenges--the widely embraced feminist interpretation of her pictures. Many of the conclusions in the text are supported by an extensive register of archival documents and by the very core of the study: the first and only catalogue raisonné of Artemisia's autograph works, each of the fifty-seven pictures exhaustively investigated as to basic factual information, condition and color, iconography, history, documentation and dating, existing copies, and bibliography. Catalogues of misattributed and lost paintings complete this comprehensive volume.

"In this admirable work, at once passionately argued and lucidly written, Professor Garrard effectively considers the social, psychological, and formal complexity of the shaping and reshaping not only of the artist's feminine and feminist identity in the misogynistic society of the seventeenth century, but also of that identity in the discipline of art history today."—Steven Z. Levine, author of Monet, Narcissus, and Self-Reflection "Mary Garrard's detailed investigation into attribution problems in two Artemisia Gentileschi paintings brilliantly interweaves connoisseurship, constructions of gender and artistic identity, and historical analysis. The result is a richer and more nuanced vision of the best-known female artist in western history before the modern era, and an important contribution to feminist studies." —Whitney Chadwick, author of Women, Art, and Society "In her new book, Garrard has taken two bold steps that challenge much received opinion in the 'discipline' of art history. Analyzing two of Gentileschi's least violent but most moving images, Garrard argues that the painter's personality is discernible no less in the subjects and their interpretation than in the 'style' of the works; consideration of both aspects is essential to understanding the meaning of these extraordinary pictures and her authorship. Perhaps even more important, Garrard makes crystal clear that Artemisia Gentileschi, far from a 'good woman painter,' was one of the major visual thinkers of her time."—Irving Lavin, co-author with Marilyn Aronberg Lavin, of La Liturgia d'Amore: Immagini dal Canto dei Cantici nell'arte di Cimabue, Michelangelo, e Rembrandt (Modena, 2000) "Developing her earlier methodologies and revising some conclusions, Garrard clarifies her distinct theoretical approach and voice among feminist critiques of art history. In this text, which reads in part like a forensic mystery, Garrard builds not only an argument for attributions of particular works, but a new understanding of Gentileschi herself at a particular moment in history."—Hilary Robinson, editor of Visibly Female: Feminism and Art Today "One of our most distinguished feminist art historians brings contemporary gender studies to bear on traditional paintings connoisseurship to show how attributions to female artists have often been governed by tacit cultural assumptions about the limitations of women. Her case makes compelling reading for anyone interested in early modern society, culture, women and art in Italy, and in the problematics of feminism and art history."—Kathleen Weil-Garris Brandt, author of Leonardo e la Scultura "By revealing a great woman painter's ways of expressing uniqueness while negotiating expectations, Mary Garrard helps each of us with the subtleties of remaining authentic while living in the world. Artemisia Gentileschi around 1622 is art history to live by."—Gloria Steinem

Artemisia Gentileschi was an Italian Baroque painter, considered one of the most accomplished painters in the generation following that of Caravaggio. In an era when women painters were not easily accepted by the artistic community or patrons, she was the first woman to become a member of the Accademia di Arte del Disegno in Florence. She painted many pictures of strong and suffering women from myth and the Bible - victims, suicides, warriors - and made it her specialty to paint the Judith story. Her best-known work is Judith Slaying Holofermes (a well-known medieval and baroque subject in art), which "shows the decapitation of Holofernes, a scene of horrific struggle and blood-letting". That she was a woman painting in the seventeenth century and that she was raped and participated in prosecuting the rapist, long overshadowed her achievements as an artist. For many years she was regarded as a curiosity. Nowadays she is regarded as one of the most talented and expressionist painters of her generation.

Artemisia Gentileschi was the greatest female artist of the Baroque age and one of the most brilliant followers of the great Caravaggio. As a young woman she was raped by her tutor, and then had to endure a seven-month-long trial during which she was brutally examined by the authorities. Gentileschi was shamed in a culture where honor was everything. Yet she went on to become one of the most sought-after artists of the seventeenth century. Gentileschi's art communicated a powerful personal vision. Like Frida Kahlo, Louise Bourgeois, or Tracey Emin, she put her life into her art.

Raised to the status of an international luminary by her contemporaries and now revered as one of the defining talents of the seventeenth century, Artemisia Gentileschi poses urgent questions for today's scholars. The recent outpouring of new attributions and archival discoveries has profoundly enriched our knowledge of the artist, but it has also complicated, and sometimes contradicted, the former storyline. If she was illiterate and unschooled, how did she befriend Galileo and court playwright Jacopo Cicognini? If she could not pay her bills, why did she continue to spend lavishly? How can we define her authorship if we admit workshop productions to her oeuvre? In these essays, an international cast of scholars and experts grapples with these problems, opening new paths of inquiry and laying bare their methodologies in fields as diverse as laboratory analysis, archival research, cultural history, literary analysis, and feminist art history. Among these approaches, connoisseurship takes center stage. By reconstructing the chronology and rationale of Artemisia's artistic iter, connoisseurship reveals the richness of her visual dialogues, including those with prominent contemporaries such as Caravaggio, Annibale Carracci, Vouet, Cristofano Allori, and Stanzione; with past artistic giants like Donatello and Michelangelo; and with the various hands who passed through her workshop as collaborators and assistants. These essays infuse our understanding of Artemisia with complexity and nuance, yet they also trace her characteristic mix of intelligence and verve in her art, her correspondence, and her deft social maneuvering, running like a thread through all stages of her life.

*A fundamental study on two central representatives of the Caravaggesque style, which flourished in Italian art of the 17th century*Sheds new light on Orazio's sojourn to Paris, a subject on which little has been written*Contains new additions to the catalogue of works painted by Artemisia Gentileschi while in London, and analysis of previously unpublished documents and correspondenceIn 1624 Orazio Gentileschi (1563-1639) left Italy for Paris, where he had been summoned by the Queen, Maria de Medici. Two years later he moved to London to work for the Duke of Buckingham and, after the Duke's assassination, for Charles I and his wife, Queen Henrietta Maria. Orazio died in London in 1639, while his daughter, Artemisia, who had joined him in 1638, remained in Britain till 1640. But these simple biographical facts do not do these great artists justice.A dozen stunning paintings and a number of documents, several of them previously unpublished, are all the remaining evidence that illuminates this period of the Gentileschis' personal lives. In this book, the Gentileschis' work is placed in the context of courtly patronage - a structure in which art and politics were strictly intertwined. Charles I was attempting to transform his court into a truly European one, art collections included, while papal diplomacy worked tirelessly to convert Charles so that he might join the ranks of Catholic monarchs. Art was instrumental to this attempt; Cardinal Francesco Barberini, on behalf of pope Urbano VIII, sent many artworks to the court of St. James. Evidently, art's function extended beyond the aesthetic. Paying tribute to art's prime position within the monarchic establishment of 17th-century Europe, this book will be an invaluable resource for any student of Art History.

"Although Florence was not considered a major center of activity for Caravaggesque painting during the early Seicento, elements of Caravaggesque style nevertheless appear in the work of some Tuscan artists during the second and third decades. Stylistic sources for the assimilation of Caravaggesque tradition by these artists are limited to either Roman followers of Caravaggio who traveled through Tuscany, to trips Tuscan painters may have made to Rome, to Caravaggesque painting in the Medici collections or to the presence of Artemisia Gentileschi in Florence between 1613-1620. While the documentary evidence in support of the first two possibilities is inconclusive at best, the physical presence of Caravaggesque paintings in Florence as well as the presence of Artemisia as an actively practicing and respected Caravaggesque painter have been documented. This study represents an assessment of the extent and significance of Artemisia's contribution to Caravaggesque tradition in Tuscany derived from a stylistic analysis and comparison of her Florentine-produced work with selected paintings by three of her Tuscan contemporaries--Cristofano Allori, Francesco Rustici and Rutilio Manetti. The approach used centers on a reconstructive research methodology utilizing integrated scholarship from three areas: Italian painting ln the late Cinquecento and early Seicento, Artemisia's biography and a stylistic analysis of her Caravaggesque works produced between 1612- 1620. Within the framework of this art historical context, selected works by Allori, Rustici and Manetti are examined for the presence of stylistic elements that are more typical of Artemisia than Caravaggio, Orazio Gentileschi or other Caravaggist influences., A stylistic analysis and comparison of paintings by Caravaggio, Orazio and Artemisia reveals that Artemisia's Caravaggesque manner consistently displays several qualities which result from her own unique design. A similar approach between paintings by Artemisia.and Allori, Rustici and Manetti reveals an assimilation of some elements of her innovative Caravaggesque manner by each of these artists. While a complete assessment of her contribution is not possible, based on the limited amount of available documentation, it is clear from this stylis- tic analysis that Artemisia played a significant role in sustaining and enriching Caravaggesque tradition through her active role as a successful and respected Florentine painter"--Document.
