  Artemisia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Artemisia was the name of two queens of Halicarnassus in the 5th century BC and 4th century BC.

 H-Net Multimedia Reviews: John C. Tibbetts on Artemisia
When Artemisia denies this, claiming still to be a virgin, she is subjected to a humiliating vaginal examination by a nun.
Since the film deals only with Artemisia's youth, it maintains a highly romanticized posture toward its subject, depicting a woman full of fierce feminist tendencies and passionately erotic energies; a woman whose rage toward Tassi the rapist is tempered with her love for him as a man and artist.
Artemisia would pay a heavy price, of course, but this film is not limited to indicting the attempts to stifle the energies and genius of this gifted female artist.

Artemisia must first contend with not being able to see or paint nude male models (as can every other artist) and her inability to be accepted into art school based on her gender.
Artemisia discreetly takes a candle from a church (that she then uses at home to paint by).

Banti fuses Artemisia's life with her own in Nazi-occupied Italy in a richly complex, historical narrative present, entering into dialogues with her heroine on how best to present her life, and on the nature and limitations of biography.
As an unhappy adolescent in Rome, starved for love from her aloof father Orazio, a prominent artist, Artemisia allows herself to be seduced and is publicly humiliated for losing her "virtue." Hastily married off for form's sake, she is removed by the contemptuous Orazio to Florence where she begins to establish herself as a painter.
Artemisia's struggle to fulfil herself, ensnared as she was in the toils of patriarchy with its punitive double standards, is a powerful lesson in courage and the sustaining powers of a vocation.

Cervi invests Artemisia with a very believable, dark-eyed passion for the form; she wants to paint and will do so, societal norms be damned.

It is a beautiful, intensely sympathetic study of the young Artemisia Gentileschi, her struggles to learn and grow as an artist in a society that makes it very difficult for her to do so, and her relationships with the men in her life.
Artemisia's later career was not that of a poor, wronged victim; she went on to become a very successful painter.
First of all, Artemisia "was" raped by Agostino Tassi--although she did not bring up a case against him as soon as it happened--and she never fell in love with him.

Tassi, an artist working with Artemisia's father, Orazio, in painting a series of religious frescos, agreed to teach Artemisia after the girl's request for admission to the males-only Academy of Fine Arts was rejected.

Artemisia's fascination with sex and the naked male body leads to an ever- present subtext about the relationship between eroticism and art -- a subject that has fascinated scholars and laymen alike throughout history.

 Artemisia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Seventeen-year-old Artemisia Gentileschi (a delicious Valentina Cervi), the daughter of a renowned Italian painter, exhibits her father's talent, but in the chauvinistic world of early-1600s Italy women are forbidden to paint human nudes or enter the Academy of Arts.
So Artemisia seeks the tutelage of Agostino Tassi (Mike Manojlovic), her father's collaborator in painting frescoes for secular clients, and a man notorious for his night-time debauchery.
The two hone their skills as artists, but when their relationship moves into the realm of physical pleasure, Agostino is clearly the master and Artemisia the apprentice.

 Artemisia
Writer-director Agnès Merlet is guilty of the same oversight, even though her camera swooningly gazes at Artemisia (Valentina Cervi), who feverishly pores over her drawings while a hushed voice-over provides suitably cryptic, poetic expressions of her fervor.
Merlet (Son of the Shark) envisions Artemisia Gentileschi as a full-fledged Romantic heroine, driven by an ill-fated love affair to a life of resilient independence and fierce artistic expression.
Their quickly escalating "affair" is presented as the key unlocking Artemisia's true artistic potential, and the trial as merely the revenge of a society unable to condone true passion, in love or art.

 ON ARTEMISIA GENTILESCHI
Artemisia Gentileschi is today considered the most important woman artist of the pre-modern era, and a major artist of the Italian Baroque.
Perhaps it seemed to the filmmaker that presenting Artemisia as a sexually independent woman was a positive gesture, a step beyond casting her as a sexual victim.
Perhaps unwittingly, the film Artemisia taps into pervasive stereotypes about women artists in general, and it perpetuates the stigma of a primarily sexualized identity that has followed Artemisia Gentileschi from her own lifetime down to the present.
