Self-Portrait as a Lute Player – Artemisia Gentileschi Art Prints
The painting “Self-Portrait as a Lute Player” is one of the first self-portraits created by Artemisia Gentileschi, who was one of the most important female artists working in Italy during the 1600s. In this work, she depicts herself playing the lute, which was a popular instrument at that time.
The work shows that Gentileschi was not only skilled at the art of painting but also at the art of music. She wears a blue gown with gold embroidery awhile playing the lute. Her lips are pursed as if she is ready to play it, and her eyes seem to be on something in the distance.
The work is an example of baroque art because it employs dramatic lighting effects and uses vivid colors to create an emotional response from viewers. The use of light and dark areas also creates depth within the image.
