Painter and pioneer: Artemisia at The National Gallery (Google Blog)

Google Blog: Painter and pioneer: Artemisia at The National Gallery. “Artemisia Gentileschi didn’t fit the mold of the typical 17th-century Italian gentlewoman. At a time when women had limited opportunities to pursue artistic training, Artemisia forged a career for herself and established an international reputation. Thanks to a collaboration with The National Gallery, which is hosting the first major retrospective of Artemisia in the U.K., Google Arts & Culture is bringing Artemisia’s story to life online.” If you want to learn more about Artemisia’s life, check out the documentary Michael Palin did about five years ago. It might even be available on YouTube.
