Artemisia Gentileschi

Recommended Posts

One of my life goals is to try to see all the existing Artemesia paintings on public display. I doubt I'll make it...they are scattered a little too far...but I'm closing in on all the ones in the U.S. 

Cindy and I went to Detroit last weekend and I saw Judith and Her Maidservant at the Detroit Institute of Art. It was fantastic, though the lighting made it hard to get a good angle. I appreciate how often the women's hands are featured in her paintings. I've also seen her work at Uffizi and Pitti Palace as well as Colombus, and Toledo. Wikipedia says there is now one in Virginia, but I've been to that museum before and didn't remember it, so perhaps it was a new acquisition. I see there is also one in St. Louis now. Perhaps that will be the next trip.
