MORE ABOUT THE PLAY:

Blood/Water/Paint tells the story of Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian Baroque painter, today considered one of the most accomplished painters in the generation following that of Caravaggio. In an era when women painters were not easily accepted by the artistic community or patrons, she was the first woman to become a member of the Accademia di Arte del Disegno in Florence. She was also a victim of sexual violence perpetrated by her mentor. Her achievements as an artist, were long overshadowed by the rape and by her participation in the prosecution of the rapist. For many years she was regarded as a curiosity. Today she is regarded as one of the most progressive and expressionist painters of her generation. Blood/Water/Paint is a raw and powerful exploration of the power of creation as a tool for survival and healing as well as a revealing portrait of a brilliant woman whose accomplishments were buried under the weight of selective history.
