Where to see ARTEMISIA Gentileschi's paintings in ROME, NAPLES, FLORENCE, and SORRENTO (and in London and NYC)

One of my favorite artists is the Late Italian Renaissance, Early Baroque Caravaggista painter Artemisia Gentileschi. Over the years her work has been difficult to view – some times because her work was mislabeled or away for restoration or on loan to another museum. Some of her work is in private collections and is spread throughout Italy, France, England, and the US. She has a handful of important works in Florence, Naples, Sorrento, and Rome. There have been major exhibitions of her work in New York, LA, Paris, and Milan in the last few years and several documentaries on her canon. Her father was also an exceptinal maestro, Orazio Gentileschi, and often one can see a brushtroke by his daughter's hand as she worked in his studio under his tutelage for some time in her youth. They both have a connected but beautifully unique style from each other in the emotion on the canvas. Orazio's work is all over the world, including some major pieces in NYC, London, Italy, and in Boston (Cambridge). He was a friend and colleague of the great Carravaggio and like his daughter, is one of the Caravaggisiti, followers of Caravaggio. One can see it in their interpretations of his chiaroscuro. I’ve been obsessed with seeing all this maestra's intact works in person before I die, along side the two maestros, and hope to achieve it.

The American Vatican journalist in Roma, Mozarella Mamma, was inspired by my fixation on Artemisia a few years ago to pen a series of great articles on Artemisia entitled: “An Italian Heroine.”
