Artemisia was buried in the church of St. John of the Florentines, in Naples. Unfortunately the place was destroyed in the Second World War.
Artemisia was once thought to have died in 1652/1653, however, recent evidence has shown that she was still accepting commissions in 1654—although increasingly dependent upon her assistant, Onofrio Palumbo. It might be speculated that she died in the devastating plague that swept Naples in 1656 and virtually wiped out an entire generation of Neapolitan artists.
