Tickets & Prices

Hear her voice from her letters, and see the world through her eyes.

Bringing together over thirty works from public institutions and private collections, this is a must-see exhibition on at the National Gallery running from 3rd October 2020 – 24th January 2021.

Artemisia was an exceptional female artist at a time when women were not easily accepted. She challenged conventions, defying expectations, to became one of the greatest storytellers of her time.

She painted subjects traditionally reserved for her male counterparts; transforming meek maidservants into courageous conspirators, and victims into survivors.

Although greatly admired during her life, her rape as a young woman and torture she endured during the trial that followed, overshadowed her artistic achievements. Today, she is recognised as one of the most gifted painters of the Italian Baroque period. Her art and life continue to inspire novels, films, documentaries, musical and theatrical productions.

In this first major monographic exhibition of Artemisia’s work, see her best-known paintings including two versions of her iconic and viscerally violent ‘Judith beheading Holofernes’, her self portraits, heroines from history and the Bible, and recently discovered personal letters, seen in the UK for the first time.

Pick-up standard concession tickets from £20 per person and prepare to be blow-away by Artemisia’s exceptional career.
