IX. VENUS

Artemisia was in Venice in 1628.
Little we know about the trip to this city. However paintings such as Danaë and Cleopatra, created in the following years, reveal that in Venice she had had the chance to see works by Giorgione and Titian.

She had quickly learned the lesson of the Venetian masters (not only Giorgione, but Tintoretto and Veronese too), incorporating in her art many of their aspects, such as colours and themes - most notably the biblical heroines.
