We’ll take you into three of Florence’s most prominent art museums and into the footsteps and behind the curtain of one of the world’s most revolutionary and controversial feminist artists of all time: Artemisia Gentileschi, the artist, trailblazer, and legend who took her revenge in oil.
Born at the cusp of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, Artemisia Gentileschi was the most famous woman painter of the seventeenth century, and worked in the most important cities in Italy. A pioneer in her field, Artemisia Gentileschi was the first woman to be taught by Caravaggio and admitted into Florence’s most prestigious academy of artists. She built her reputation on her brutal art featuring subverted Biblical scenes with women in power, and our private tour will show you some of her most controversial and esteemed masterpieces. With skip-the-line access into three famous Italian museums, we’ll bring you up close and personal to some of the greatest art masterpieces in history. Discover the motivation and the inspiration behind the art, on our private guided exposition on the life, times, and art of Artemisia Gentileschi, all led by a leading international expert and specialist.
