Shop Item of the Week is this poster print of a painting by Celine Mcilmunn titled ‘Artemisia’. This image is one of six paintings Mcilmunn has created as part of her ‘Mighty Women’ series. Each image depicts a strong powerful woman from history. Artemisia Gentileschi (1593 – c. 1656) was a painter who specialized in painting pictures of strong and suffering women from myths, allegories, and the Bible- victims, suicides, warriors. In an era when female painters were not easily accepted by the artistic community or patrons, she was the first woman to become a member of the Accademia di Arte del Disegno in Florence and had international clientele.
