Her happiness, her life, her very being was a living breathing tableau vreelaand painting, of seeing art in the smallest of objects, and thoroughly exploring her craft.
Allora, vi starete chiedendo, perche’ una sola stellina? Another thing that bothers me is that because Artemisia is so strong I have little sympathy for her.
La passione di Artemisia : Susan Vreeland :
Nonostante la scrittura in prima persona, che sempre mi fa storcere il naso, tutta la narrazione scorre leggera, toccante, interessante. Overall it was worth the read but could have used an editor with a heavier hand.
But historical fiction that I enjoyed this book more than I expected to–I picked it up at a used passiione sale simply because Vreeland’s Girl in Hyacinth Blue is one of my favorite books. For me the pleasure had been visual, in creating shape and applying the color, and tactile, in smearing the thick creamy paint on my palette, but the pleasure was not of the mind. Le descrizioni dei quadri non sono all’altezza di un romanzo che deve “far vedere i quadri” anche a chi non li ha mai visti, neanche su Internet, e non ha tempo o voglia di andarli a cercare per capire meglio quello di cui legge.
Artemesia is more traditional historical fiction. She wanted to be loved but she wasn’t very loving. From extraordinary highs – patronage by the Medicis, friendship with Galileo and, most importantly of all, beautiful and outstandingly original paintings – to rape by her father’s colleague, torture by the Inquisition, life-long struggles for acceptance artekisia the artistic Establishment, and betrayal by the men she loved, Artemisia was a bold and brilliant woman who lived as s From extraordinary highs – patronage by the Medicis, friendship with Galileo and, most importantly of all, beautiful and outstandingly original paintings – to rape by her father’s colleague, torture by the Inquisition, life-long struggles for acceptance by the artistic Establishment, and betrayal by the men she loved, Artemisia was a bold and brilliant woman who lived as she wanted, and paid a high price.
Per questo sicuramente tanto di cappello all’autrice, che decidendo di pubblicare con una grande casa editrice ha fatto conoscere la figura di Artemisia a moltissime persone che, come me, paesione la conoscevano prima, ma a parte questo il romanzo non ha meriti.
But what Girl has is clearly inimitable. Rakel rated it did not like it Aug 28, Women were treated like property with no rights and as true as that might be, the one problem I have with this author is that this is the only side she is willing to share in her books. This was a wonderful, beautifully told tale of an artist named Artemesia who was portrayed as a woman painter in the seventeenth century.
So why take a real person pxssione write about, if the few bits of knowledge are distorted? Artemlsia had been paid for craft, not for art.

Open Preview See a Problem? To me it seems a bit like a message is being given and that makes me uncomfortable. Preview — La passione di Artemisia by Susan Vreeland. La risposta e’ semplice: For you art lovers who also like historical fiction, this one’s for you.
In Vreeland’s book the characters act in a manner or with a determination that seems “modern”. Lists with This Book. Quando abitavo a Londra pero’ mi piaceva andare alla National Gallery, sedermi sulle panchine e guardare con attenzione i quadri che piu’ colpivano la mia attenzione, perche’ dipingere in fondo e’ come scrivere, un modo per esprimersi e per lasciare al mondo una parte di se’.
The painting s the main character, the hops through time. She even admits as much to her father. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in reading about the life of an artist and perhaps historical fiction lovers in general.
There is love and there is acceptance even of traits that are so very different between the mother and daughter. I admired Artemisia, but felt a bit distanced from her. Hossein Artemisiw rated it did not like it Nov 01, Be the first to ask a question about La passione di Artemisia.
She gave absolutely zero fucks about what people thought, or the snide and sniveling remarks her husband and peers made. Hmmm – this I like! Still, there is a story arc and the book was at least interesting enough for me to finish it.

It also dealt heavily with rape and the mentality surrounding it: What is important is that it moves us, NOT that passoone moves us along one set path. The prose is clunky, the POV narration is preachy, and there are strong rape apologist threads. Her books have been translated into 26 languages.
Publicly humiliated, shamed and basically abandoned by her father a famous artisther life is basically ruined. Artemisia had a most tenuous relationship with her father, also an artist, with her husband, a philanderer and an unfaithful man, and her daughter who oftentimes bore the brunt of the lack of her mother’s love because her mother devoted her very being to her art. I am giving this 4 stars – the ending was superbly done. I sysan think it’s sad that as she got older, her pieces got less and less original and striking and just completely conventional, simply accepting pasxione men painted women instead of how she used to paint women.
Artemisia Gentileschi was a total badass: Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. However, as the characters developed more and the timeflow became less irregular or rather I became more accustomed to the irregularitythe real message of forgiveness and how our lives impact others came across.
