Hi wonderful artists,
Well done on todays class. Above is a video for you as a reference. Below there is an image of the two groupings of light and shade blocked in as a reference.
We can draw parallels between Artemisia Gentileschi in her lifetime and the modern day recording artist Taylor Swift.
I have included videos at the bottom of the post of her music video The Man and the making of. Both women have brilliance in common, success from a young age, fame and media attention both good and bad.
Both are arguably the best in their area of creative work, have created a huge body of work, constantly creating, are renowned for their beauty, relevant to the time they lived in and have had their personal lives scrutinised.
Both have constantly had to reinvent themselves and are both feminists. In the sense that they believe and are public and courageous in their feeling about all genders being very valuable.
Both have had to defy gender discrimination. Artemisia of course famously said “I will show you what a woman can do”.
See you next week and looking forward to it,
