The Passion of Artemisia

passiione I am so happy to be home reading again! Vreeland’s book does a decent job of introducing such pieces and creating an atmosphere for the 17th century time period, and much of her book seems well researched.

Looking back on what I had read I decided Artemisia was a artemlsia interesting person despite what I thought of her along the way. Artemisia Gentileschi was a total badass: She struggles to make sense of a daughter who would choose love over painting. Mar 07, Marialyce rated it really liked it.

La passione di Artemisia

I found the book very interesting and well written. Si seguono i suoi spostamenti, i cambiamenti nella sua vita, am tutto si riduce a “lui fa quello, andiamo a Firenze, quanto e’ bella, informazioni su quel quadro, su quell’altro monumento, vengono vreelwnd personaggi famosi di quei tempi, e poi nasce una figlia e via discorrendo sino alla fine.

And especially from a blood family or marriage partner. I do think it’s sad that as she got older, her pieces got less and less original and striking and just completely conventional, simply accepting how men painted women instead of how she used to paint women. It was post-renaissance in Italy and a young woman was trying to make it as a painter.


I felt unmoved by Artemisia’s suffering in the same way she suspected her daughter Palmira was, and for the same reason, I suspect. Publicly humiliated, shamed and basically abandoned by her father a famous artisther life is basically ruined. Aug 24, apollohoenian rated it it was amazing Shelves: Quella era la donna che volevo dipingere. Susan Vreeland non la conoscevo ma in quan Questa storia inizia qualche tempo fa, ero ancora al liceo, e la professoressa di letteratura italiana adoro quella donna stava parlando della sindrome di Standhal HardcoverBestsellerspages.

Such a fascinating story! It truly became a book I could not put down. I liked the descriptions of Florence and some of the great works of art to be found there. Passionate about her art, she fought for acceptance in the artistic community and was the first woman to become a member of the Accademia di Arte del Disegno in Florence.

The Passion of Artemisia by Susan Vreeland

Come, mi chiedo io, come e’ possibile scrivere un romanzo tanto piatto su una storia cosi’ coinvolgente, su una donna che merita di essere conosciuta? I wanted to paint her thoughts, if such a thing were possible — determination and concentration and belief in the absolute necessity of the act.

But ask me one question about artistic terms and I become completely lost. I appreciate the characters that this author creates. But what Susan Vreeland managed to do artemiaia wonderfully was creating a backstory whether it be real or entirely fictionalthat explains the kinds of art that she did.


Dov’e’ l’anima di Artemisia? Devo ammettere che l’arte non era la mia materia preferita a scuola, e che la mia coscienza non arriva nemmeno ad livello sufficiente da avermi fatto riconoscere il nome di Artemisia Gentileschi. So much of this story is wrapped around her being an only child, and raising an only child, and both being daughters. For you art lovers who also like historical fiction, this one’s for you. Rakel rated it did not like it Aug 28, She had suffered during this male oriented trial, tortured with the Sibillea type of medieval thumbscrews and has her lack of virginity publicly examined by two midwives in front to the entire courtroom.

It was sad to read of the denials Artemisia suffered because within her very fiber lived an artist. One thing Vreeland does do well in this book is get inside the mind of the main character, argemisia fema I first read one of Vreeland’s books when I was in middle school Paesione in Hyacinth Blueand I remember enjoying it very much.

How does one deal with betrayal? She lives in San Diego, California.
