Strokes Of Brilliance
A major exhibition featuring the works by the most famous female painter of the 17th century will open at The National Gallery. At a time when women artists were not the norm, Artemisia Gentileschi was unique for having a long and successful career of more than 40 years. She painted subjects that were traditionally the preserve of male artists, transforming meek maidservants into courageous conspirators. In this first extensive exhibition of Artemisia, see her best-known paintings and follow in her footsteps from Rome to Florence, Venice, Naples, and London. From April 4 to July 26. Sainsbury Wing, The National Gallery London.
