Artemisia Gentileschi

History of a passion

The visual identity we designed for the first Italian retrospective show devoted to Early-Baroque artist Artemisia Gentileschi took as its starting point the very idea that was used as a teasing element to kickstart the exhibition’s promotion: combining the opposite extremes of “ultra light” and “extra bold” typefaces, we obtained an A (for Artemisia) that shows and hides her most celebrated painting, Judith Slaying Holofernes.
