Artemisia Visits Glasgow Women’s Library
6th March - 19th March
We’re delighted that Glasgow Women’s Library is the first pop-up venue for Artemisia Gentileschi’s Self Portrait as Saint Catherine of Alexandria, an oil painting from about 1615–17, as it makes its way on a ‘grand tour’ from the National Gallery, London.
Artemisia Visits Glasgow Women’s Library, Wednesday 6th March to Tuesday 19th March, visit during GWL opening hours
The importance of Artemisia Gentileschi is irrefutable and this addition to our national collection is incredibly exciting. We are thrilled that her ‘grand tour’ will start with Glasgow Women’s Library, the only Accredited Museum dedicated to women’s history in the UK. As well as being able to see this stunning work, we look forward to welcoming people to participate in our public events programmes during this period. Sue John, Glasgow Women’s Library’s Enterprise Development Manager
