She was the first woman to be accepted into the Accademia di Arte del Disegno in Florence, famous for her blistering works of biblical and mythological brilliance and sought after by the great and the good all across Europe.  With the launch of the first ever retrospective in the UK of her powerful works of art, we bring together leading thinkers in the world of art history to explore the formidable life, work and legacy of Artemisia Gentileschi. Hers is a story of fierce talent, singular ambition and the wider history of female artists. Panellists include art historian and BBC broadcaster Dr Bendor Grosvenor, renaissance historian Dr Catherine Fletcher, and art historian and podcaster Ferren Gipson.
