Artemisia Gentileschi

Today was a great day because I finally got to see the Artemisia Gentileschi exhibit at the Musee Maillol! She's a 17th century Italian painter, and I was realllly excited when I first saw the posters for the exhibit because we studied her in my Baroque Rome art history class a few years ago.

She painted a lot of Old Testament subjects, and it would appear that her favorite was Judith, since she painted her so many times:

She painted other things too, though, and she was a student of Carravagio. Anyway, I really like her, and I'm so glad that I got to see some of her stuff up close!

St. Denis tomorrow!
