Compelling Paintings

a collection of paintings i love from all throughout history
Artemisia Gentileschi
Judith Slaying Holofernes, 1612
o/c
Artemisia was a rare female artist in the 17th century. She was raped by her father’s best friend in his studio. She got even with this painting, where she painted herself as Judith and her rapist as Holofernes. What a badass.
