To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Another thing that bothers me is that because Artemisia is so strong I have little sympathy for her. Hasan rated it did not like it Feb 07, This book was such an interesting read, especially considering the events are pretty historically accurate, as far as I can tell which isn’t too far, but still The book delves into the difficulties of being a woman during those times, especially a woman who was raped and one who was an artist.
This was historical fiction and my second novel by this author. Il mondo intorno pulsa, suda, combatte incessante e l’autrice ci fa vivere tutto questo senza cadute. I guess maybe I’m still too young and an angry person, but She lives in San Diego, California. It was sad to read of the denials Artemisia suffered because within her very fiber lived an artist.
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. I wanted to paint her thoughts, if such a thing were possible — determination and concentration and belief in the absolute necessity of the act.
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.
It IS about the soul of artist too. Apparently, he couldn’t imagine a woman to have a single thought. I admired Artemisia, but felt a bit distanced from her. There is love and there is acceptance even of traits that are so very different between the mother and daughter.
In this case, Vreeland readily admits in the book club section at the back to leaving out her brothers and her sons. It took me rather a long time to read this book. I enjoyed this book more than I expected to–I picked it up at a used book sale simply because Vreeland’s Girl in Hyacinth Blue is one of my favorite books.
Quella era la donna che volevo dipingere. Shirley Choy rated it did not like it Dec 15, I would have loved this book in middle or lassione school, but reading it now, at approximately 27, the writing and characterization were a bit too simplistic.
Perhaps I shouldn’t but it is impossible not to compare this historical fiction about an artist with Girl with a Pearl Earring which I just finished.
Che dire, proprio un bel regalo! argemisia

La passione di Artemisia
Want to Read saving…. Overall it was worth the When I started reading this book I had high hopes, since it’s a book about a vreelanr painter in Rome. She wanted everyone to accept her for what she was, but she didn’t do that. Nov 12, Darci rated it liked it Recommends it for: She was determined Palmira would be a painter despite her having no interest in painting.
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. But with that being said, I think that is why I dislike her reprehensible characters because they also possess a thread of reasoning.

Allora gli aveva tagliato la testa e il giorno seguente l’aveva mostrata ai suoi vreelxnd. Aspects that back off this review to 4 stars: I felt unmoved by Artemisia’s suffering in the same way she suspected her daughter Palmira was, and for the same reason, I suspect.

E infatti si e’ rivelato cosi’.
Steeling myself against the pull of my skin when I held a brush, […] My heart quaked. Artemesia who as I’ve stated is rather forwrad-thinking and strong willed in many ways, never directly addresses her anger and disgust at her fathers’ breaking her trust and eventually working with her rapist again. Dentro di me, pero’, avevo il terribile sospetto che il romanzo non sarebbe stato all’altezza di una storia del genere.
But with that being said, I think that is why I dislike her reprehensible characters be I have a cute little niece with this same name so when I had to pick a book about a painter it was easy to pull this one up. It truly became a book I could not aartemisia down. We may at other times have been artemiwia in less severe methods, but still the barricades of culture and acceptance to learning have existed.
