(Hi)Story of a Painting: The Light in the Shadow

VR - AR United Kingdom 2022
By: Quentin Darras Gaëlle Mourre

A journey into the extraordinary stories behind the art that captured the world’s imagination. (HI)STORY OF A PAINTING: THE LIGHT IN THE SHADOW, narrated by Cerys Matthews, explores the story of one of today’s most celebrated Baroque artists: Artemisia Gentileschi. We follow her journey as she navigates a world where women have virtually no rights, and becomes one of Europe’s most celebrated and in-demand painters of her time. Artemisia painted herself into posterity within her own lifetime – this story is about how she rose up against the odds and continues to capture our imaginations today.
