See a rare surviving painting by Artemisia Gentileschi, the greatest female artist of her generation, in a new temporary display at Windsor Castle.

The painting has been rediscovered in the Royal Collection after being misattributed at least two centuries ago. 

The rediscovered painting, Susanna and the Elders, sheds fresh light on Artemisia's time in London in the late 1630s, working alongside her father at the court of Charles I and Queen Henrietta Maria.

The painting has recently undergone extensive conservation work including the painstaking removal of centuries of surface dirt, discoloured varnish and non-original paint layers to reveal the original composition.  

Shown alongside it is Self-Portrait as the Allegory of Painting, considered one of Artemisia’s greatest works, and Joseph and Potiphar’s Wife by her father Orazio Gentileschi, painted during his time in London. The three paintings can be seen in the Queen’s Drawing Room at Windsor Castle, taking their place alongside other Stuart masterpieces in the Royal Collection. 

The display is included as part of your visit to Windsor Castle.
