Baroque Master Painter, Artemisia Gentileschi | Episode 52


Artemisia Gentileschi is, to this day, considered one of the Italian Baroque period's more brilliant painters. Having mastered her craft at a ridiculously young age, Artemisia became a household name early on. But because the art world was so staunchly male, she had to fight against the misogynistic bullshit of the time, even taking a man to trial for rape. She brought a uniquely feminine perspective (duh) that had been lacking in art, making her pretty much one of a badass kind.
