"Historical Inaccuracies in Artemisia"

When her father Orazio Gentileschi brings Tassi to trial on the charge of rape to protect his own reputation , Artemisia testifies even when tortured that Tassi did not rape her. Tassi is presented first as a reluctant lover, then as a flawed but noble character who protects Artemisia by accepting the false charge of rape.

He never confessed to the crime, and on the contrary, tried to accuse Artemisia's father of having deflowered her, and to insist she had also written love letters to other men -- though she could barely write at the time. Artemisia testified repeatedly under oath and torture that she had been raped by Tassi.

She described the event in explicit and graphic detail, and her own resistance to the point of wounding him with a knife.

After the rape, Agostino promised to marry Artemisia, which would have been the only socially acceptable remedy in 17th century Italy for a woman who had become "damaged property. In reality, Tassi was known as what might now be called a multiple sex offender. He had been sued for raping and impregnating his sister-in-law, equated with incest, and there was testimony at the trial that he had arranged and paid for the murder of his own wife, whom he had also acquired by rape.

Tassi is cast as a guiding creative spirit, whose ability to visualize landscape inspired Artemisia's art. His work is also portrayed as rivaling that of Artemisia's father, Orazio Gentileschi. Artemisia's art had nothing to do with landscape she hired other artists to paint the landscape backgrounds in her pictures.

Abstract or Description

Contrary to the film, she never drew or painted independent images of the nude male body. There was no known effect of Tassi's "teaching" on her art, and Tassi's own art is judged to be second rank, no rival for that of Artemisia or her father. Artemisia Gentileschi is today considered the most important woman artist of the pre-modern era, and a major artist of the Italian Baroque.

She was the first female artist to paint large scale history and religious pictures, subjects considered off-limits to women at that time, and she specialized in themes with female protagonists. Her depiction of traditional stories of rape and vengeance -- but from the viewpoint of a woman -- marked a breakthrough in the history of art.

I. Pursuing history

In fact, a year before the rape, Artemisia produced an important early painting, Susanna and the Elders of , whose unusual treatment of this biblical theme has been recognized as a subtextual protest against the sexual exploitation of women.

The Judith and Holofernes painted shortly after the rape -- which is used in the film as an erotic tableau vivant -- has been interpreted by art historian Mary Garrard as a metaphoric expression of female resistance to masculine sexual dominance. THE MYTHS The idea that a woman artist is the creation of a male mentor has been a persistent myth in the history of art, frequently asserted by artists and critics of the 16th and 17th centuries.

So has the romanticization of violent rape, as in the rape scenes in this film, and the idea that women wish to be raped or fall in love with their rapists.Still, if there is hope for the renovation and salvation of human society, it is to be found in women. Though the text shows, at first sight, strong influences from the frammentisti writers such as Cecchi and Tozzi, Riccobono delves deeper and hypothesises a less apparent set of intertexts which reveal how the writer, then living in pre-Solaria Florence, must have already sensed the international literary atmosphere which was to characterise the Tuscan capital in the years to come as a haven for exciting literary and politically liberal influences.

Tassi is presented first as a reluctant lover, then as a flawed but noble character who protects Artemisia by accepting the false charge of rape. Allarme sul Jago. Perhaps unwittingly, the film Artemisia taps into pervasive stereotypes about women artists in general, and it perpetuates the stigma of a primarily sexualized identity that has followed Artemisia Gentileschi from her own lifetime down to the present.
