Synopsis:
Despite being placed in a nunnery, Artemisia Gentileschi still wants to be a painter, something that is seen against God in 17th Century Italy. The Pope having decreed no woman can paint a nude male or enter the Academy. Instead she studies under her father, Orazio, embracing new techniques to his chagrin. Artemisia's journey as a painter is mirrored by her sexual awakening. Her father's rival, the debauched but brilliant Agostino Tassi arrives in town and Artemisia decides to learn from him, if he will take her as a student. Tassi falls for her charms, even using force on the innocent virgin.
A true story, expertly crafted and sensually photographed of the liberating journey of the world's first accredited woman painter.
