and a woman?
Artemisia Gentileschi had all but one.
Raped,tortured, betrayed, unloved, she still succeeded in heralding a new age for women through her paintings of strong heroines, and in the process learned important lessons about forgiveness, friendship, and love.
New York Times Bestseller, BookSense #1 Pick
"Who would have thought that this novelized life of a Renaissance painter,
a woman, would be so packed with spiritual firmness, sexual politics,
Inquisition savagery, and inextinguishable talent for portraiture?
It's a lovely book."
