Description
 

Recently rediscovered by art historians, and one of the few female post-Renaissance painters to achieve fame during her own era, Artemisia Gentileschi led a remarkably modern life. Susan Vreeland tells Artemisias captivating story, beginning with her public humiliation in a rape trial at the age of eighteen, and continuing through her fathers betrayal, her marriage of convenience, motherhood, and growing fame as an artist. Set against the glorious backdrops of Rome, Florence, Genoa, and Naples, inhabited by historical characters such as Galileo and Cosimo de Medici II, and filled with rich details about life as a seventeenth-century painter, Vreeland creates an inspiring story about one womans lifelong struggle to reconcile career and family, passion and genius.
