Winner of the 2016 Helen and Howard R. Marraro Prize given by the Society for Italian Historical Studies. -- Helen and Howard R. Marraro Prize * Society for Italian Historical Studies * "A valuable, beautifully illustrated, and intriguing study. . . . Locker adds much to our knowledge of Gentileschi's reputation during her lifetime."-Marjorie Och, Woman's Art Journal -- Marjorie Och * Woman's Art Journal * "Locker's book provides precious insight into Artemisia's ties to seventeenth-century academic culture, into the breadth of literary admiration for her work, and into her intellectual and artistic milieu."-Frances Gage, Renaissance Quarterly * Renaissance Quarterly * "A welcome and thought-provoking addition to an understanding of [Artemisia Gentileschi's] work and of the intertwined literary and visual cultures of early modern Italy."-Karen J. Lloyd, CAA Reviews -- Karen J. Lloyd * CAA Reviews * "In this beautifully illustrated study . . . Locker sheds new light on [Gentileschi]. . . . His study significantly deepens understanding of this fascinating artist and is an important contribution to the field."-Choice * Choice * "In Artemisia Gentileschi, [the artist is revealed as a] thoughtful artist in dialogue with her contemporaries, less a product of her biography than a fully engaged mind. It's a compelling argument for re-examining her later works."-Johns Hopkins Magazine * Johns Hopkins Magazine * "In the past 100 years, Artemisia Gentileschi has become one of the most recognizable painters from the 17th century, male or female. Her Caravaggio-inspired paintings-full of blood, dramatic violence, and striking uses of shadow and light-are massive draws in the museums that hold them. . . . Yet audiences and critics alike usually find themselves dumbfounded and let down by the paintings made in the last decades of her career, when she was at the height of her fame and influence. . . . Locker's book provides a much-needed answer to the disparity in the feminist icon's work-to the question of what happened to Artemisia's painting style, and why."-William O'Connor, The Daily Beast -- William O'Connor * The Daily Beast * "Artemisia Gentileschi opens up new understandings of a prominent female artist and baroque culture in Italy."-Elizabeth Cohen, York University -- Elizabeth Cohen * Elizabeth Cohen *
