“A Woman Like That”

Friday at the VMFA 6:30pm
$8.00 – Members $5.00

Join filmmakers Ellen Weissbrod and Melissa Powell and guest scholar Judith Mann, Curator, European Art to 1800, Saint Louis Art Museum, in-person with the new film, “a woman like that” (2010, 93 min), an investigative tribute to 17th century Italian Baroque artist Artemisia Gentileschi. The filmmakers’ creative and engaging pursuit seeks the truths behind the life and work of this legendary artist. Includes footage of rarely seen works found only in private collections. Discussion with Q&A will be held after the film.

Artemisia Gentileschi was a lone woman painting in a man’s world. This film has stirred discussion and brought Gentileschi’s art to a wider audience. The documentary film, “a woman like that” (2010) is currently touring universities and art galleries with the filmmakers.

Richmond.com has a nice article by Colleen Curran on the flim and filmmakers.
