Set against the lush tapestry of Renaissance Rome, this is a mesmerizing tale of love, art, and most notably, the love of art. After Artemisia Gentileschi, a promising young painter, is raped by her instructor, a papal court orders her torture and her father betrays her. Shamed but not vanquished, she asks her harsh parent to arrange her marriage to another painter and, thus vindicated in the eyes of society and the church, she begins a new life. But not a happy one. Artemisia's visceral passion to create art-specifically, to depict on canvas the kind of strong heroine she herself has become-threatens to overwhelm her roles as wife and daughter. Her struggle to reconcile her conflicting passions lies at the heart of Artemisia's story, ingeniously crafted by Susan Vreeland, whose gift of language is matched by her uncanny ability to evoke a distant time and place. Vreeland's previous novel, the best-selling Girl in Hyacinth Blue, dazzled the critics and was voted a Book Sense Book of the Year finalist. Once again bringing the visual arts to vivid life, The Passion of Artemisia is a glowing, subtly delineated portrait of a remarkable woman-the first to make a significant contribution to art history.… (mer)

Boring! I love Artemisia, so I was expecting more, frankly. I didn't even finish it, it was so slow and monotonous. ( )

Quattordici maggio 1612». Nella sala di Tor di Nona, il tribunale papale, il notaio, un ometto avvolto di rosso porpora scuro, borbotta scrivendo con la sua penna d'oca. Due mesi, e per la prima volta non ha dipinta sulla faccia un'espressione annoiata, poiché oggi è l'atteso giorno del giudizio. Tra poco, l'Illustrissimo Signore Hieronimo Felicio, luogotenente di Roma e inquisitore di Sua Santità, farà il suo ingresso nella sala, si sistemerà sul suo alto scranno, si accomoderà la veste scarlatta in modo da sembrare più imponente e interrogherà la donna, la giovane artista per la quale mezza Roma è accorsa nelle sinistre aule dell'Inquisizione, mentre l'«assistente di tortura» le stringerà le ruvide corde della sibilla attorno alle dita.
Tra poco si saprà se corrispondono al vero le parole della denunzia che il padre della giovane ha sporto presso il papa Paolo V, parole che sono risuonate a lungo in ogni angolo della Città eterna e rimbombano ora nella mente di ognuno nell'umida e scura sala di Tor di Nona: «Agostino Tassi ha deflorato mia figlia Artemisia e l'ha forzata a ripetuti atti carnali, dannosi anche per me, Orazio Gentileschi, pittore e cittadino di Roma, povero querelante, tanto che non ho potuto ricavare il giusto guadagno dal suo

It was very hard to relate to the main character and her sensibilities, but the author is quite right to pen Artemisia Gentileschi in such a frustrating manner. She was a woman of her time who possessed a difficult manner. Most of the characters are difficult to understand, but I think it was the time and the patrician nature of religion. The author sees through it and allows her feminine characters to be true to themselves.

The setting was irresistible and the tale is well told. As I was reading, I looked up the paintings mentioned and looked at each through the author's/character's eyes. Very satisfying. ( )

This struck me as a very feminist novel. It was more about feminism and the relationships amongst women than it is a historical account of a female painter. ( )

E' un romanzo solo blandamente biografico, il cui intento non è fornirci notizie precise sulla vita di Artemisia Gentileschi, ma raccontare la storia di una grande artista e di una grande donna, che ha lottato duramente per conciliare queste due anime eternamente in conflitto. L'introspezione compiuta sulla protagonista è davvero accurata, non solo dal punto di vista psicologico ma da quello pittorico: per ogni quadro nominato ci vengono spiegate le ragioni che l'hanno portata a dipingerlo in un certo modo, rendendo ogni sua opera viva e densa di significati. Le ambientazioni sono quelle claustrofobiche dell'Italia del primo seicento, in cui per fare arte bisognava sottostare ai capricci dei ricchi committenti e nessuno era al sicuro dalla lunga mano dell'inquisizione; l'autrice riesce a ricostruire vividamente l'atmosfera del periodo, grazie anche all'introduzione di personaggi quali Galileo e Cosimo de Medici.
Lo stile non è brillante, ma è scorrevole e chiaro.
Insomma questo è uno di quei libri senza difetti ma senza particolari qualità, che forse non lascerà un'impronta indelebile nel nostro animo, ma che non si può fare a meno di trovare piacevole. ( )

About suffering they were never wrong,
The Old Masters: how well they understood
Its human position; how it takes place
While someone else is eating or opening a window
or just walking dully along.

I closed my eyes and breathed slower to let the new truth settle and find a spot to live in me – how hard the world was going to make me.
“I long to know everything you’ve seen in Florence – every painting and sculpture, every church, piazza, and tower, everything in sunlight, shadow, even rain. If you could spare the time and if it would please you, put your artist’s eyes into words.”
“Where art and science touch is the realm of the imagination, the place where original ideas are born, the place where both of us are most alive.”
I could study this Sabine woman who lived nineteen centuries ago and feel empathy for her, but now her struggle did not devastate me, did not make me wince as I had the first time I’d seen her. I had walked by this sculpture a thousand times on my way to the vegetable market and I had not become rigid with anger. Those atrocities against women had not ceased to exist in the world, but life marches on. Onions and white beans must still be bought.
At home I untied the string and tipped out the earring – Graziela’s pearl drop. On a scrap of paper edged with Graziela’s leafy tendrils were the words, “Sell the pair. Buy paint.” A warm wave passed through me. I touched the earring to my lips and closed my eyes, sure that I had never understood love till now.
