“I have made a solemn vow never to send my drawings because people have cheated me. In particular, just today I found...that, having done a drawing of souls in Purgatory for the Bishop of St. Gata, he, in order to spend less, commissioned another painter to do the painting using my work. If I were a man, I can't imagine it would have turned out this way.”

— Artemisia Gentileschi, from a letter to her patron Don Antonio Ruffo, November 13, 1649. Quoted in History of Art, Sixth Edition (2001) by H.W. Janson and Anthony F. Janson.
