Artemisia Gentileschi

Artemisia Lomi or Artemisia Gentileschi

 July 8, 1593 – c. 1656

was an Italian Baroque painter, now considered one of the most accomplished seventeenth-century artists working in the dramatic style of Caravaggio.

In an era when women had few opportunities to pursue artistic training or work as professional artists, Artemisia was the first woman to become a member of the Accademia di Arte del Disegno in Florence and had an international clientele.[3][4]

Artemisia specialized in scenes of heroines and stories centered on women from myths, allegories, and the Bible, including victims, suicides, and warriors.[5] Some of her best known subjects are Susanna and the Elders (particularly the 1610 version in Pommersfelden), Judith Slaying Holofernes (her 1614–1620 version is in the Uffizi gallery), and Judith and Her Maidservant (her version of 1625 is at the Detroit Institute of Arts).

Caravatio did one too!  maybe she wanted recognition of this one.
