Emerging From Darkness heroes the dramatic stories of three female artists; Artemisia Gentileschi, Lavinia Fontana, and Sofonisba Anguissola, who cathartically reinterpret experiences of violence and turmoil, yet at the same time, represent voices of empowerment. Their works are showcased alongside major paintings by Peter Paul Rubens, Valentin de Boulogne, Guercino and Bartolomeo Manfredi, among others. The Baroque is the most passionate and emotive art movement in history. Visitors will experience works that changed the course of art in the 17th Century. An exhibition of this content can usually only be experienced in galleries and museums overseas. While some works are known, others have rarely been seen. All, however, are powerful, unapologetic, and undeniably memorable.
Royal Mail Hotel, in partnership with Hamilton Gallery are pleased to offer a limited number of dining and accommodation packages available for the opening weekend.
