I Know What I Am: The Life and Times of Artemisia Gentileschi
Michelangelo, Velázquez, Rubens, Rembrandt – all larger-than-life Renaissance figures celebrated for their mastery of their art. But often overlooked in the pantheon of Old Masters in Artemisia Gentileschi – Italy’s greatest female painter.
In her debut graphic novel, Seattle author and artist Gina Siciliano brings to life the tumultuous 17th-century cities of Rome, Florence, Naples, and Venice where the fearless Artemisia braved the male-dominated sphere of painting to become a groundbreaking artist. I Know What I Am paints a complex, feminist portrait of Artemisia as a single mother, a sexual survivor, and a pioneering practitioner of her craft.
