Artemisia Gentileschi – Italian Baroque Painter

Artemisia Gentileschi (1593 – 1653), was one of the first women artists to achieve recognition in the male-dominated world of post-Renaissance art. She was the first woman to paint major historical and religious scenarios, especially in an era when women painters were not easily accepted by the artistic community. She unfortunately is also known for being a rape victim in a well-publicized trial in 1612, an event that later affected her painting style and themes. Our patterns show nearly all of her well recognized works including Susanna and the Elders, Judith Slaying Holofernes, DanaĆ«, Saint Cecilia, and several self-portraits including Self Portrait as a Female Martyr.
