I studied Artemisia in Feminist Art Criticism. 
Artemisia Gentileschi (1593 - 1652/1653), daughter of well-known Roman artist, Orazio Gentileschi (1563 - 1639), was one of the first women artists to achieve recognition in the male-dominated world of post-Renaissance art. In an era when female artists were limited to portrait painting and imitative poses, she was the first woman to paint major historical and religious scenarios.

Born in Rome in 1593, she received her early training from her father, but after art academies rejected her, she continued study under a friend of her father, Agostino Tassi. In 1612, her father brought suit against Tassi for r*ping Artemisia. There followed a highly publicised seven-month trial. This event makes up the central theme of a controversial French film, Artemisia (1998), directed by Agnes Merlet.

The trauma of the r*pe and trial impacted on Artemisia's painting. Her graphic depictions were cathartic and symbolic attempts to deal with the physical and psychic pain. The heroines of her art, especially Judith, are powerful women exacting revenge on such male evildoers as the Assyrian general Holofernes. Her style was heavily influenced by dramatic realism and marked chiaroscuro (contrasting light and dark) of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1573 - 1610).

After her death, she drifted into obscurity, her works often attributed to her father or other artists. Art historian and expert on Artemisia, Mary D. Garrard notes that Artemisia "has suffered a scholarly neglect that is unthinkable for an artist of her calibre." Renewed and overdue interest in Artemisia in recent years has recognized her as a talented seventeenth-century painter and one of the world's greatest female artists.

Rectangles

Rectangles

I like to make rectangular, postcard-sized ensembles. I call this group Rectangles a.k.a. Postcards because of the shape - rectangular. Either vertically or horizontally. This group does NOT have to include actual postcards, stamps, letters, etc... It's about what you can do on a postcard-sized space. But every set must be rectangle in shape. I can't wait to see what you do!
 
UPDATE : This is an artistic group, so, please no fashion.
 
NOTICE: Square sets will be cut from publishing with no notice. If it continues, the person will be blocked from the group as I am tired of cutting sets. I don't like doing it and I feel that person is being inconsiderate.
