Masters of Art - Artemisia Gentileschi_Large

Artemisia Gentileschi

Kindle (US version), Kindle eBook, ePub (US version), ePub eBook

The Italian Baroque artist Artemisia Gentileschi is considered one of the most accomplished painters in the generation following 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, achieving fame for her many depictions of strong female characters from myth and the Bible. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Gentileschi’s complete works in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
