But even painting didn’t seem a wrtemisia of joy to Artemisia, just an essential part of her being. However, the book focuses a lot on things I’m not interested in, such as marriage and kids and cheating husbands and and forgiveness.

How does one deal with betrayal? Allora, vi starete chiedendo, perche’ una sola stellina? It did not tell a story. The story begins during the latter part of the trial of her rapist, and continues through her times in Florence, Genoa, Rome, Naples, and London.
This novel was truly about the passion of Artemisia instead of her pain. I don’t know why I read this. Open Preview See a Problem? She was the first woman to paswione accepted by the Academia. Everywhere I looked, art! But historical fiction that I enjoyed this book more than I expected to–I picked it up at a used book sale simply because Vreeland’s Passilne in Hyacinth Blue is one of my favorite books.
I love love love this book. Ho trovato poi la seconda parte decisamente poco approfondita e un po’ frettolosa, visto che copre almeno almeno 15 anni in meno di cento pagine!
Caravaggio gave all the feeling to the man. It was sad to read of the denials Artemisia suffered because within her very fiber lived an artist. Mi ha messo tristezza.
Having read others of Susan Vreeland, I know how she can grab the depth of a character and an era. I was fascinated by Artemisia’s thought processes when she was creating a new painting, and by the details about proportions, light and shade and the mixing of pigments the colours had wonderful nameshow she looked at things and tried to paint truth. Elizabeth rated it did not like it May 28, In this case, Vreeland readily admits in the book club section at the back to leaving out her brothers and her sons.
I admired Artemisia, but felt a bit distanced from her. Non era una domanda, ma un’affermazione. So che la mia opinion non sara’ condivisa dai piu’, ma io questo libro ,a lo consiglierei.
They seem to always possess a thread of reasoning. I had been paid for craft, not for art. I’d never heard of her before this, and I found looking up her paintings enhanced my enjoyment of the book. When Artemesia is denied certain things a place to live, arfemisia membership in certain art circles due to her gender, she seems flabbergasted.
She gave absolutely zero fucks about what people thought, or the snide and sniveling remarks her husband and peers made.

And the book also became a travelogue of all those marvelous cities and places of art innovation, seen through the eyes of the artists and philosophers of that era.
It was too far removed from the world I know to have any real meaning for me. That golden light, that marvelous contrast of Italia’s afternoon. I can only imagine the courage it took in that court and under that torture.
And yet she still manages to succeed and is now considered l of the most widely regarded and respected artists of her era. The Passion of Artemisia. Artists must artemisua their pieces and not all can be completely a result of the artist’s own feelings and motivations and wishes.
I hated how he only brought charges against the rapist because a Artemesia would be harder to marry off since she was “deflowered” I hate that term and b because he wanted a painting back that the rapist a co-painter with him had stolen. The prose passkone clunky, the POV narration is preachy, and there are strong rape artemsiia threads. I guess it is imagined, but it is a very true to life relationship.
La risposta piu’ ovvia e’ che certe scene non sono semplici da scrivere e forse e’ meglio che non sia stata inserita, visto che il resto del romanzo e’ inesorabilmente lento, e tutti gli eventi sono, appunto, eventi. Aggiungo pure che vreelans romanzo e’ ,a in prima persona, quindi dovrebbe essere ancora piu’ semplice per il lettore immedesimarsi in Artemisia.

In Rome, she will have to resort to portrait painting, for one thing and then there is how some people greeted her, with that old stigma “whore” I have a very had time relating to this. Le descrizioni generiche, poi, lasciano il tempo che trovano.
I bought this book shortly thereafter, and then approximately 15 years went artwmisia, and I finally got around to reading it. Her books have been translated into 26 languages. Despite all that, I’m still glad I read it.
She favoured painting works of strong and suffering women from myth and the Bible — victims, suicides, warriors — and made it her speciality to paint the Judith story from the Old Testament. For readers who are unfamiliar with Artemisia’s work, this novel has no draw.
