Running from 3rd October 2020 – 24th January 2021 at the National Gallery, discover an exceptional artist, Artemisia, from a time when female artists were not easily accepted.Bringing together over thirty works from public institutions and private collections, some of which have never been seen in the UK before, this is a must-see exhibition.Challenging conventions and defying expectations, Artemisia became one of the greatest storytellers of her time. She painted subjects that were traditionally the preserve of male artists and for the male gaze; transforming meek maidservants into courageous conspirators and victims into survivors.See Artemisia’s best-known paintings including the iconic and viscerally violent ‘Judith beheading Holofernes’; as well as her self portraits, heroines from history and the Bible. Follow in her footsteps from Rome to Florence, where she became the first woman to gain membership at the artists’ academy.Whatever you decide, get ready to see the world through Artemesia’s eyes.Book your tickets online here.
