V. CASINO DELLE MUSE

To mix with men in workplaces, both in the ateliers and on the scaffoldings during the creation of frescoes, was inappropriate if not morally prohibited for a young girl at the time.

Today it is almost sure that, in 1611, Artemisia, together with her father and Agostino Tassi, took part in the production of A Musical Concert with Apollo and the Muses on the ceiling of the Casino delle Muse in the garden of Scipione Borghese’s Roman Palace.
