Susan Vreeland con il suo “La passione di Artemisia” ci regala un affresco lungo tutto un secolo il XVII attraverso gli splendidi scenari d’arte di Roma e Firenze e personaggi dai volti talvolta carismatici, talvolta alteri. I love love love this book. Devo ammettere aartemisia 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.
It IS about the soul of artist too. Lists with This Book. 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.
I like historical fiction, but I did not like this book. Le ambientazioni sono quelle claustrofobiche dell’Italia del primo seicento, in cui passioen 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.
It also dealt paszione with rape and the mentality surrounding it: 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.
I was immensely irritated by the Italian words scattered needlessly and, on the whole, meaninglessly throughout the book.

Arash rated it did not like it Sep 24, You just have to stop and think about them in the context of how the story plays out. Secondly, I don’t like it when books analyzing art to tell you what vreelabd should be feeling, tell you why you should feel this or that or tell you what a particular paining MEANS.

She had suffered during this male oriented trial, tortured vreelanf the Sibillea type of medieval thumbscrews and has her lack of virginity publicly examined by two midwives in front to the entire courtroom. As bright as the Italian colors of this era. 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 Girl in Hyacinth Blue is one of my favorite books.

Se proprio volete farvi un’idea di chi era Artemisia Gentileschi cosa che consiglio di fare perche’, come ho detto, penso che sia una figura degna di essere conosciuta cercatela su Internet, leggetevi Wikipedia OK, maybe this is what is bothering me.
Yet despite the turmoil of her young life, she overcomes all this and goes on to paint what are considered some of the most brilliant paintings of all time. However, it is in the parts where there are no documents, Essentially this novel is like sappy fan-fic for art historians. Raped at seventeen, Artemisia was indignant when her father, Tuscan painter Orazio Gentilesch, was paid off by her rapist to drop the charges.
Her happiness, her life, her very being was a living breathing tableau of painting, of seeing art in the smallest of objects, and thoroughly exploring her craft. Oh, a quote I liked from the book, even though I’m not sure if it was first written somewhere else, “To love is to stand willingly in the noose of illusion, adoring someone while you wait to choke.
