Artemisia Gentileschi: The Image of the Female Hero in Italian Baroque Art
1989·Princeton, New Jersey
by Garrard, Mary D.
Princeton, New Jersey: Princeton University Press, 1989. Hardbound. VG+/Good+ (Clean, bright, tight. Dust jacket spine a bit faded and with a bump to head of spine). Maroon cloth with gold lettering; xxvi + 607 pp. with 332 illustrations. Glossy maroon dust wrapper with color illustration. Pertinent ephemeral articles from the Washington Post, NY Times, and Newsweek tucked in. A bit heavy and may require extra postage. Artemisia Gentileschi, widely regarded as the most important woman artist before the modern period, was a major Italian Baroque painter of the seventeenth century and the only female follower of Caravaggio. This first full-length study of her life and work shows that her powerfully original treatments of mythic-heroic female subjects depart radically from traditional interpretations of the same themes.
