Two women painters with notable accomplishments, Judith Leyster (1609-60) and Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1653), emerged in the 17th century in Europe. This lecture will examine similarities and differences in the paintings of these two artists. What are the shared Baroque elements in both? How did the enormous impact of Caravaggio show up in both women’s work? What aspects of their paintings are attributable to their shared gender? And how did their gender impact their career paths? These and other questions will be considered. These important women artists have recently begun receiving the art historical attention they deserve. Livestreamed Online via Crowdcast.
