Artemisia Gentileschi

At a time when it was difficult for women artists to be recognised and accepted, Gentileschi had to fight other negative attitudes such as the claim that her first major painting at 17, was accomplished with the aid of her famous father, painter Orazio Gentileschi.

Strong women were a feature of her work, and of the 57 of her paintings, 94% were of this nature.

While there were several other talented artists before her, she was the first woman to become a member of the Accademia di Arte del Disegno in Florence.

Winslow Homer

Winslow Homer, an American print-maker and landscape painter, was known for his artwork on marine subjects.

In his early career he worked as a commercial illustrator for 20 years, and later opened up his own studio. While he was already gifted i watercolour, he trained for just one year before producing oil paintings.

His artwork during the Civil War focussed on the war at home and its effect on women. After the war, many of his pieces were nostalgic, as if yearning for simpler times.
