The Italian Cultural Institute invites ArtTable members to celebrate International Women’s Day, with a conversation on Invisible Women: The Rediscovery of Historical Women Artists in Florence. Spots for this event are limited and reserved for ArtTable members only.
Florence is home to great masters of Italian Renaissance art such as Botticelli, Donatello, Leonardo and Michelangelo but few people know that the city nourished women artists as well. Through the joint efforts of Italian museums such as the Uffizi and the US organization Advancing Women Artists, these often-forgotten women are now being rediscovered and their works restored and exhibited once more.
Join us and conservator Elizabeth Wicks for a talk focusing on Plautilla Nelli, Artemisa Gentileschi, Violante Siries Cerroti and Violante Ferroni, and the fascinating journey of their rediscovery and conservation.
