Artemisia Gentileschi, Sheila Barker

Summary
The life of the Italian painter Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1653) was as exceptional as her paintings. She was a child prodigy, raised without a mother by her artist father, a follower of Caravaggio, under whom she apprenticed. This is the first biography to be written by an authority on Gentileschi since 1999 and includes five newly discovered paintings
