Artemisia Gentileschi

Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts
Russia, Moscow
1 February 2019 - 31 March 2019

Days of exhibition


Curated by Vittoria Markova, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs and Head of Italian Paintings at the Pushkin, the exhibition presents three 17th-century masterworks from the Capodimonte Museum in Naples. Judith and Holofernes by Artemisia Gentileschi, Angel with Dice and Tunic by Simon Vouet and St. Agatha by Francesco Guarino. These are displayed in dialogue with five works by Artemisia’s contemporaries from the collection of the Pushkin Museum: St. Sebastian and Allegory of Faith by Guercino, and the Holy Family with young St. John and St. Elizabeth, Joseph with the Wife of Putifarre and The Adoration of the Shepherds by Guido Reni. Each of these works will offer visitors the chance to discover the profound influences that Caravaggio had on these artists, at the same time showing the diversity of their styles and schools.
