A newly discovered self-portrait by Artemisia Gentileschi has been sold in Paris for €1.85m. The estimate was a conservative €300k-€400k. It shows her in the guise of St Catherine of Alexandria, and compares to another recent self-portrait discovery now at the Wadsworth Atheneum, which had been offered at Christie's in New York with an estimate of $3m-$5m, but didn't sell.
