The recent spate of monographs and exhibitions dedicated to individual women artists living in Rome – such as Plautilla Bricci, Lavinia Fontana, Giovanna Garzoni, and Artemisia Gentileschi – and the concomitant appearance of collective surveys – such as Donne che dipingono: intinerari romani (2013) – and exhibitions – such as By Her Hand: Artemisia Gentileschi and Women Artists in Italy, 1500–1800 (Hartford and Detroit, 2021– 2022) – together provide an apt moment to reassess the roles that women played within the Accademia di San Luca.  These publications have shed welcome light on the lives and works of women artists in a manner that would hearten Linda Nochlin on the fiftieth anniversary of her landmark publication, “Why Have There Been No Important Women Artists?” Yet the raising of profiles has been accompanied by the raising of expectations about how deeply involved women were in the educational, administrative, confraternal, and social life of the artists’ academy in Rome.  Using documentary and other primary materials, this talk will address contested ideas about the divergent levels of participation and membership that existed for academicians of either gender throughout the long seventeenth century.
