'David and Goliath' Confirmed as Work of Female Artist

The Smithsonian Magazine reported that a 17th-century painting of David and Goliath, which depicts David nonchalantly resting on Goliath’s sword and seated over the giant’s decapitated head, was confirmed to be the work of Artemisia Gentileschi, and not of Italian painter Giovanni Francesco Guerrieri, as once thought.
