National Gallery Exhibition: Artemisia

Come face-to-face with Artemisia and her paintings in the first major exhibition of her work in the UK at the National Gallery.

At a time when women artists were not easily accepted, Artemisia Gentileschi was exceptional. She enjoyed a long and successful career as a painter, spanning more than 40 years, and she was the first woman to gain membership to the artists’ academy – the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno – in Florence.

Around 35 works from public and private collections around the world come together to give a selective overview of Artemisia’s career: From her training in Rome, where she learnt to paint under the guidance of her father Orazio Gentileschi, to her time in Florence, where she established herself both personally and professionally, and the last 25 years of her life, during which she set up a studio in Naples and undertook a brief trip to London.

The exhibition features some of her best-known paintings and self portraits, as well as more recently discovered works, and gives visitors a unique chance to encounter Artemisia.

 

Ticket information will be available in 2020.
