Art History Happy Hour : Artemisia

November 15, 2021 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

The Outsiders:

Caravaggio and Artemisia Gentileschi

Caravaggio was a rogue, a scoundrel, an outlaw and a murderer –yet one of the most innovative and influential artists of his age.  Caravaggio’s artistic legacy was passed down to Artemisia Gentileschi, who also suffered a difficult and turbulent life and became one of the only celebrated female painters in the history of Italian art.

Currently Artemisia’s work is on display at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum in Hartford: “By her Hand” until January 9, 2022.

Join Elaine Ruffolo who will be joining us live on Zoom from Florence, Italy, for a look at how Caravaggio and Artemisia remain two of the most  beloved artists today.
