Artemisia / Alex Connor.

Artemisia / Alex Connor.

Three 17th Century notebooks are left to Cornelia Stein in London. They tell the story of the most infamous female artist who ever lived. The notebooks interest not only museums but spark a feeding frenzy in the art world, collectors desperate to obtain the priceless artefact - whatever the cost. And so the lives of two women - one from 17th Century, one from 21st Century - mesh. Artemisia talks of sex, triumph and death, as she fights with her patrons and protects her family, and at the same time Cornelia Stein finds herself in unexpected danger as she defies the male bastions of the art world to ensure Artemisia's legacy. In the time of #MeToo and Women's Rights, Artemisia Gentileschi's extraordinary story will resonate with every woman. Dismissed and defamed for centuries, her time has now come.
