Artemisia Gentileschi

Survived rape, victim blaming/shaming, family betrayal, raised her children as a single mother in the 1600’s…this woman is a fucking badass and I’ve never heard of her before…and I’ve taken art history classes.

It is so refreshing to see women portrayed from a female perspective in art. Body positive, blunt, raw, true to life. I can identify with this.

That last one is her self-portrait. I love her expression in this one. Just look at all the fucks this woman does not give. Love.
