13 Disturbing Works of Art by Female Artists
After we posted 13 Disturbing Pieces of Art from History , several readers pointed out that none of the works were created by female artists. So, here are 13 more disturbing pieces of art, and they’re all created by women. 1. Artemesia Gentileschi - Judith and her Maidservant The most remarked-upon absence from the previous list was Artemesia Gentileschi’s version of Judith Slaying Holofernes (as opposed to the Caravaggio, Judith Beheading Holofernes , that we featured). Feel free to click on each and decide which you prefer! 2. One of the greatest painters of the 20th century, Mexico’s own Frida Kahlo is most notable for her self-portraits. 3. This particular painting is not so much creepy as it is bizarre. 4. Rosa Bonheur was one of the great painters of the French animalier style popular in the 19th century. 5. A far more modern piece than previous entries on the list, this painting was only created just under a decade ago, in 2003. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.
