Artemisia Gentileschi and the Old Mistresses

with Patrick Bade

Classes & Courses

Come and hear Patrick talk about Artemisia Gentileschi who enjoyed a long and successful career as a painter, spanning more than 40 years. Following in the footsteps of Caravaggio, her Baroque paintings were some of the most dramatic and dynamic of her generation. She became known for her realism, and for placing women and their stories at the centre of all her images.

Despite the many hurdles she had to cross, she has recently risen to the top of the canon as one of the first female artists to have a broad, incisive impact on the art of her time. She’s also influenced decades of artists after her—especially those looking for a masterful and tenacious heroine. Patrick’s session stands alone or will enhance your visit to the exhibition from April to July in the Sainsbury Wing.
