​Renaissance & Baroque Women Artists

Renaissance & Baroque Women Artists

Discover Exceptional Women who Challenged Conventions, Defied Expectations and Left their Mark on Art History 

 

Join an intimate community for six lively discussions on the remarkable women of the Italian Renaissance and Baroque eras. 

Each class will shed light on a different female painter, from Sofonisba Anguissola, Artemisia Gentileschi, Fede Galizia, Elisabetta Sirani, and more. All painted subjects that were traditionally the preserve of male artists. We'll learn how each artist navigated a male-dominated art world, competed with their male contemporaries to receive commissions from illustrious patrons, including aristocrats, cardinals, popes, and monarchs, and  rose to international fame. With special attention to their self-portraits, religious and historical themes, we will observe how they portrayed themselves and their female subjects as ingenious, intrepid and heroic.

Inspired by the ongoing exhibition, Artemisia at The National Gallery, London (2020-21), this series integrates cutting-edge research and scholarship. No background in art necessary. All that's required is a curious mind. Sessions are led by Lauren Jimerson, PhD.
