PETER GORSEN - Venus or Judith? On Heroising the Feminine Image in Lucas Cranach and Artemisia Gentileschi

The interest of the author of this study is directed toward the problem of femininity in art. On the one hand in the works of Lucas Cranach he tries to show the relationship between the man-artist to the themes in which the woman plays the basic role. On the other and in the works of Artemisia Gentileschi he tries to show certain aspects of painting which link the figure of the woman-artist and the world around her. This philosophic-sociological study is part of a book in preparation dedicated to the problem of femininity in art and women artists.
