Artemisia Gentileschi, Judith Slaying Holofernes, 1614–20. I find the gruesome imagery of this painting to be incredibly moving. Inspired by Caravaggio, Artemisia used aggressive contrast to really emphasize the subject matter. The portrayal of the facial expressions is chilling, and she successfully achieved the appearance of the physical weight and struggle.

Artemisia Gentileschi. Artista formada en el taller de su padre que era seguidor de Caravaggio. El trabajo de Artemisa se diferencia del de otras mujeres por sus obras a gran escala basadas frecuentemente en temas bíblicos o mitológicos protagonizados por «heroínas» o «mujeres fuertes» y también por el tratamiento poco convencional que recibe en sus lienzos la iconografía del heroísmo femenino. Ejemplo: «Susana y los Viejos».

Today she is now considered one of the most accomplished painters in the generation after Caravaggio and is well known for painting strong minded women from mythology that dominate over men.
