One of the most famous pieces by Artemisia Gentileschi was Susanna and the Elders. This was her first painting, and it was inspired by sexual assault she experienced that same year. It can be characterized as Renaissance art by its detailed background, heavy emotion, and nudity. The people in the painting are all in motion, and are painted to model that of a real person.
Susanna and the Elders
This scene portrays a biblical scene in which Judith, a Jew, slays her suitor Holofernes. This is another example of how sexual assault influenced Gentileschi’s works. The female protagonist is has control over the situation and is eliminating the antagonist. You can tell that this is Renaissance art by the heavy emotions and rich colors portrayed.
