I do think it’s sad that as she got older, her pieces got less and less vreelanf and striking and just completely conventional, simply accepting how men painted women instead of how she used to paint women.

Lush descriptions that I was able to sink into while Vreeland unfolded the story of real life 17th C Italian Baroque artist Artemisia Gentileschi, the first female artist to be accepted into the Academy of Art in Florence. Another thing that bothers me is that because Artemisia is so strong I have little sympathy for her. Personally, Artemisia is my favorite female artist. So why take a real person to write about, if the few bits of knowledge are distorted?

Mar 07, Marialyce rated it really liked it. Chevalier’s book seems to be more about character study and what makes an artist an artist while Vreeland’s is more about betrayal, so far at least.

I was immensely irritated by the Italian words scattered needlessly and, on the whole, meaninglessly throughout the book. Lists with This Book.

Si comincia con il processo ad Agostino, accusato di aver stuprato Artemisia. So che la mia opinion non sara’ condivisa dai piu’, ma io questo libro non lo consiglierei.

In this Artemisia was a champion, far beyond her artistic accomplishments and abilities.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in reading about the life of an artist and perhaps historical fiction lovers in general.
