I Know What I Am: The Life and Times of Artemisia Gentileschi

I Know What I Am: The Life and Times of Artemisia Gentileschi

Regular price $29.99

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.
