A life more dramatic than an Italian opera: trained in art by her father, raped as a teenager, she survived a sensational trial to become an internationally renowned painter – and the secret lover of a Florentine nobleman. A newly conceived one-woman show on the life and art of 17th-century painter Artemisia Gentileschi.
