Staff Reviews


This historical novel is based on fact and reveals the world of Artemisia Gentileschi, the first female artist admitted to the Academy in Florence.

Susan Vreeland made her mark with The Girl in Hyacinth Blue, and stands with Tracy Chevalier in the artist-as-protagonist genre.

This book was so intriguing I visited Gentileschi's exhibit in NYC when was there.

Description


Vreeland tells Artemisia's -one of the few female post Renaissance painters- captivating story, beginning with her public humiliation in a rape trial at the age of eighteen, and growing fame as an artist. Set against the glorious backdrops of Rome, Florence, Genoa, and Naples, Vreeland creates an inspiring story about one woman's lifelong struggle to reconcile career and family, passion and genius.
