This is a very interesting artist. Artemisia Gentileschi. Her paintings reflect her own pain and insights after she was raped. Than had to go to trial against the rapist. Her story is courageous. And her paintings reflect that. With a slightly psychotic and gruesome after taste.

A movie was made about her life. I have not seen it. It apparently plays very fast with the facts of her life and the trial.
