Recently, a Parisian art conservation studio announced that it has discovered Artemisia Gentileschi’s signature on a “David and Goliath” painting that it was cleaning. The painting had previously been attributed to a male artist, but one Italian scholar had been arguing for decades that Artemisia was its true author. Announcements like this are always so exciting (at least to me), especially when they reclaim achievements for female artists. Find out more in my new article for DailyArt Magazine.
