If you're looking for the feature film, this is it:

Video Librarian, November/December 1998 (Vol. 13, Issue 6)

Artemisia=20
(Miramax, 95 min., in French w/English subtitles, R, avail. Nov. 10)
The "true" story of the first great woman artist, director Agnes =
Merlet's 17th century Italian bodice-ripper stars Valentina Cervi in the =
title role as an aspiring artist shackled by the social mores and =
religious precepts of her place and time: Italy, circa 1670. =
Specifically, Artemisia wants to a) be accepted as a pupil in the art =
academy and b) draw naked guys; both of which, as a female, she is =
denied. So, the 17-year-old comely lass cajoles, first, a young Adonis =
type to pose for her (and, admirers of male genitalia take note, said =
Adonis' private parts are displayed close-up), then approaches Agostino =
Tassi (Miko Monojlovic), an artist working with Artemisia's father =
(Michel Serrault, also an artist) with her portfolio and a deep desire =
to learn. Even those who like to wade in the shallow end of the =
plot-guessing pool will have little trouble following the domino trail =
here: Artemisia and Agostino share more than paintbrushes and =
pseudo-intellectual art talk, eventually are discovered, and have to pay =
the piper (a.k.a., the Catholic authorities). Predictable, lackluster =
(sample dialogue: "no one dies of sorrow"), quiveringly earnest without =
one iota of humor, Artemisia is a perfunctory portrait of the artist. =
Optional. (R. Pitman)

Best,

Randy
