Judith Slaying Holofernes
Text is from The Art Institute of Chicago which just finished exhibiting this work.
Note: Artemisia was tortured using thumbscrews as a means of "confirming" her testimony of her rape by Agostino Tassi.
There is a historical fiction of her by Andrea Vreeland entitled The Passion of Artemisia, which sounds like it would be an interesting read - I do love historical fiction. I discovered its existence when I read this article about Artemisia. And apparently, there is a movie about her, too, along with a couple of plays.
So much I don't know - so much fun learning!
