Artemisia is the teenage daughter of a renowned Italian painter named Orazio Gentileschi. She has started to exhibit her dad's talents and he encourages her, especially since he does not have any sons to carry on his talents after him. In the early 1600s, the world is still chauvinistic and women are not allowed to paint nudes or enter into the Academy of Arts. As a result, Orazio allows Artemisia to study with him, but does not allow her to view nude men. However, she is determined, and bribes Pulvio, a fisherman, to let her draw his naked body.
