I decided to add this feature to the website, as there is probably no existing forum for fans of Artemisia.

Feel free to browse around, read some posts and, of course, post a comment, a question, or just say Hi.

Thanks for this forum! I've just begun research on Artemesia for a possible book about her life. It will be fiction, although my intent is to be as true to her as I possibly can be--unlike the silly French movie made about her.

I hope to be around here quite a bit.

Thanks for posting to the forum.

I am sure that you will be find some inspiration here in her story and in her paintings.

Have you read Susan Vreeland's semi-biographical book about her? It focuses on her life after the rape. Have you considered what part of her life that you might concentrate on?

esther before ahasuerus

I am currently writing a paper on Artemisia's painting of Esther before Ahasuerus and I am having problems finding some information on that painting. I know that it is still difficult because it's one of her paintings that isn't titled or dated. I was wondering if anyone knows who may have commissioned this piece and if it was from her time in Rome or Naples? I would greatly appreciate any help for this topic. Thank you.

I discovered Artemisia through a Facebook quiz entitled, "What kick-ass woman from history are you"? The result was Artemisia. Since I'd never heard of her, I decided to check her out online. Now I can say I am extremely proud to share, even though slightly, some of Artemisia's kick-ass view of life. Love, absolutely love, her interpretations of some of the biblical events involving women!!

There will be a concert on Friday July 16, 2010, at Bard College and Saturday July 17, 2010, at Simon's Rock featuring images of the paintings of Gentileschi and music by Monteverdi, Marini, Frescobaldi, and others. Further information is available at http://www.astonmagna.org/?page_id=23.

Thank you so much for this site, it is extremely helpful and
informative.
I am currently doing a research paper on Artemisia
Gentileschi, and after going through all of her paintings, I
have some ideas of what to write about.
I really liked how you represented the paintings and her life
events in a timeline, it is very helpful.

She worked on a ceiling painting with her father in England. I can not find any written word on this collaboration. Any help would be good. Thanks

From memory, a discussion of this is in Mary Garrard's 1989 book.

I will check and get back to you later.

What a wonderful find!

Dear Christine,

Not certain you're still moderating this forum, but
I note the 2015 copyright for the site, so I'm
thinking you are.

Two things I wanted to share:

There is an exhibit at the National Museum of
Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. through
April 26, 2015 titled "Picturing Mary: Woman,
Mother, Idea" the flyer for which can be found
here:

http://nmwa.org/sites/default/files/shared/picturin
g_mary-lp.pdf


As the flyer notes, one of the paintings is by
Artemisia Gentileschi! Yeah!

Artemisia Gentileschi, Madonna and Child
(Madonna col Bambino), 1609–10; Oil on canvas;
461 ⁄2 × 337 ⁄8 inches; Galleria Palatina, Palazzo
Pitti, Florence; inv. 1890 no. 2129

And secondly, I discovered Artemesia in an
Exhibit at the NMWA in 2002, I think, that featured

Kathleen Gilje. Susanna and the Elders, Restored
, 1998. and Kathleen Gilje. Susanna and the
Elders, Restored X-ray, 1998.

These two paintings are an amazing pair.

You can find more about them at

http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/eascfa/feminist_
art_base/gallery/kathleen_gilje.php?i=430

As far as I know these links should work. If for
some reason they don't let me know. I never
know how copy and paste works.

In the meantime, thank you for handling the forum
and I think the site, also.

Beverly

Once it posted, I tried the links, and they don't
appear to be activated. I copied and pasted them
to my browser, and they do work that way. Hope
you enjoy.

Checked dates again, and the exhibit closes April
12th NOT the 26th!
