  26. 26. ... "Artemisia has become so skilled that I can venture to say that today she has no peer. Indeed, she has produced works which demonstrate a level of understanding that perhaps even the principal masters of the profession have not attained." Orazio Gentileschi in a letter of 1612 to the powerful Christina of Lorraine, the mother of Cosimo II de’Medici, the Grand Duke of Tuscany
  27. 27. Today, much scholarly and popular attention has tended to focus on Artemisia. However, in the 17th century Orazio's fame eclipsed that of his daughter. Beyond Italy, he worked at the courts of Marie de' Medici in Paris and of Charles I in London. His paintings are characterized by their compact, tightly constructed compositions – surprisingly devoid of the dramatic urgency that lies at the core of Artemisia's paintings – and his brilliant use of color. He is often described as a poet of light – nowhere more so than in his sublime Annunciation (1623; Galleria Sabauda, Turin). Fueled by feminist studies, interest in Artemisia has increased enormously over the last quarter of a century. However, her reputation as an artist has often been overshadowed by the notorious public trial that followed her rape by an associate of her father's, the painter Agostino Tassi, when she was still a teenager. Rejecting the specialties of portraiture and still life – the genres deemed suitable to women artists – Artemisia sought to compete, and sometimes collaborate, with her male colleagues, undertaking mythological, allegorical, and Biblical themes. Far from shying from the often violent, erotically charged subjects often portrayed in Baroque art, she made them the focus of her activity, giving special prominence to stories involving a female protagonist or victim. In this, her work has often been seen as an extension of her own biography. At a time when marriage or the convent were the only respectable alternatives held out to a woman, Artemisia chose to live by her brush and succeeded.
