I will show [you] what a woman can do!

WLAC supporter Letizia Treves is the curator of the first ever exhibition of Artermisia Gentileschi’s work ever to be held in the UK. The exhibition will open at The National Gallery in early April.

Letizia kindly gave a fascinating lecture about Artemesia’s life and work to an audience of our supporters. Daughter, wife, mother, lover, painter: Letizia explained how Artemisia challenged conventions to become a famous artist and one of the greatest storytellers of her time.

Grazie mille to Meg Kaufman for organising the event, Letizia for sharing her expert knowledge and enthusiasm with us, St Paul’s Girls School for hosting us and Bective Leslie Marsh for sponsoring the refreshments.

And thank you to everyone who came. Together we raised over £1,900.
