Artemisia

"Weak"

Artemisia Review


Truish tale of Artemisia Gentileschi, widely regarded as the first serious woman painter. Fighting discrimination and a dated morality, our heroine struggles to paintwhile society says no. There's also a romance with an older guy which leads to a rather drawn-out inquest, plus a bit of a Sylvia Plath mentality about the whole thing. Ultimately, there's not a terrible lot of insight into Artemisia, but the look into 1600s Italian mores is quite telling.
