From The South Orange-Maplewood Adult School
On Thursday, February 18, award-winning art history educator Janet Mandel will join the South Orange-Maplewood Adult School to tell the dramatic and powerful story of Artemisia Gentileschi — the most famous female painter of the 17th Century.
Although trained by her father, Gentileschi went on to have a successful, independent career, only to fall into obscurity after her death in 1656. She did astonishing work, mostly portraying courageous and rebellious female protagonists. Gentileschi is regarded as one of the most progressive and expressive painters of her generation.
