Chicago Sun Times September 5, 2013 A decade or two ago, almost no one had heard of Artemisia Gentileschi. But the 17th century painter, who has since been the subject of novels and a controversial 1997 film, has become something of a cultural sensation and feminist icon, and her fame among the general public may now even eclipse some of her once better-known male contemporaries...

What artwork would you pick if the Foundation for Italian Art and Culture offered to facilitate the loan of a masterpiece from an Italian museum? Assuming that not everything is going to be on the table, the Uffizi’s “Judith Slaying Holofernes” (c. 1620) by Artemisia Gentileschi would be a damn good choice. Chicago once had its own feminist art gallery inspired by the proto-feminist Gentileschi, called Artemisia Gallery that ran from 1973-2003...

Gentileschi’s Judith Slaying Holofernes (ca. 1620), the iconic, gruesome scene that is often interpreted as revenge for the artist’s rape, is the centerpiece of “Violence and Virtue,” an exhibition up through January 9.

"Judith Slaying Holofernes" was painted in Florence nearly 400 years ago by a woman named Artemisia Gentileschi. In an era dominated by male painters, Artemisia was a standout artist. Jealous men claimed she had help from her father – a follower of Caravaggio – but she developed a sensational style all her own that featured dramatic lighting, bold composition and a penchant for strong female figures...

La Donna Velata

Peggy Sue Dunigan, EXPRESSMILWAUKEE.COM, Matisse, Raphael Coming to a Museum Near You, March 29,2010
There’s no denying the popularity and masterworks of Henri Matisse and Raphael Santi. Although centuries apart, their names signify genius. A pair of exhibitions opening this month at two Midwestern museums affords an opportunity to study their eminent artistic styles.
The Art Institute of Chicago collaborated with New York’s Museum of Modern Art to create a fascinating exploration of Matisse’s art during a short, prolific period of his career. The exhibition “Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913-1917” (through June 20) presents nearly 120 artworks from this era when Matisse pushed his creative process into more extreme experimentation.

The Renaissance masterpiece, "La Donna Velata" (The Woman with the Veil) by Raphael, is unpacked Thursday at the Milwaukee Art Museum, where it iwll be exhibilted Saturday through June 6. Opening the crate are museum preparators Joe Kavanaugh (left front) and John Dreckmann (left rear), David Moynihan (right front) and John Nicholson (right rear).

Mary Louise Schumacher, Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel, Raphael's masterpiece on view at MAM, March 25, 2010
She may be coming alone, but centuries of mystery have accompanied Raphael’s “La Donna Velata” to Milwaukee.
It may be the tiniest exhibit the Milwaukee Art Museum has ever staged — featuring exactly one painting — but this solo turn of a Renaissance masterpiece is one of the most auspicious events to occur at the museum in recent memory.
The portrait “La Velata,” as she is sometimes called for short, was once considered the most famous painting in the world. As of Saturday, she will be ensconced in one of the more intimate galleries of the museum’s older wing.

Bobby Tanzilo, OnMilwaukee.com, Raphael portrait testifies to MAM's global reputation, March 24, 2010
Milwaukee Art Museum is just one of three U.S. museums showing this Raphael masterwork.
When Leonardo DaVinci's gorgeous "Lady with an Ermine" landed in Milwaukee as part of an exhibition of treasures from Poland, all the city stood up and took notice. Luckily, when Santiago Calatrava's Quadracci Pavilion with the Burke Brise Soleil went up, the international art world took notice of Milwaukee, too.

Mel Shields The Sacramento Bee, Reno gets the girl – Raphael's 'Woman With the Veil,' that is, January 17, 2010
“At midnight two weeks ago, the parking lot of the Nevada Museum of Art was bathed in spotlights. A police escort accompanied an armored transport, which was then surrounded by security guards. A large crate was unloaded. That night, Reno got the girl. "The Girl" is Raphael's "The Woman With the Veil" or "La Donna Velata," usually found hanging in the Pitti Palace in Florence, Italy. It left that country in 1983 to be shown in Japan, and it is now in the United States, appearing in only three cities. In addition to Reno, the painting will be shown in Portland, Ore., and Milwaukee. ”

Geralda Miller, Reno Gazette Journal, High Renaissance masterpiece hangs in high desert, January 10, 2010
Mona Lisa  isn't the only Italian diva to be painted by one of the great masters of High Renaissance. Rafaello Sanzio's "La Donna Velata" ("The Woman with the Veil"), with her blushed cheeks, a thin strand of crinkled hair touching her face and eyes that appear to be watching you whatever you are in the room, has captivated many.

“The journey of one of the master works of Italian Renaissance art to Reno in January requires a finely detailed effort in logistics.
Just the instructions for construction of the crate that will transport Raphael's 'The Woman with the Veil', for instance, are precisely spelled out in approximately 200 words."

D.K. Row, The Oregonian, Opening: 'La Velata' at the Portland Art Museum, October 22, 2009
"Soon, she will be unveiled. We're talking about Raphael's "La Velata (The Woman with the Veil)," the Renaissance masterpiece that is coming to Portland for a special show opening on Saturday. The Portland Art Museum has been negotiating with the Italian government for more than a year to bring the painting to Portland. This portrait of a ravishing young woman -- painted by the lesser-known contemporary of Michelangelo -- is on loan from the Medici Collection of the Palatine Gallery, Palazzo Pitti, Florence, Italy. The show is something of a novelty. Rare is the one-painting show. But the museum is counting on the work's pedigree and the fact that it has rarely left its home country."

Midori Hirose & Joshua Orion, PortlandArt.net, Raphael's La Donna Velata comes to PAM, July 7, 2009
"Renaissance masterpiece, Raphael's Woman with a Veil is coming to Portland in October, in a one painting show. October is going to be one great month at PAM because that is also when the updated China Design Now opens for its only West Coast appearance."
