"Susan Vreeland set a high standard with Girl in Hyacinth Blue.... The Passion of Artemisia is even better.... Vreeland''s unsentimental prose turns the factual Artemisia into a fictional heroine you won''t soon forget." —People

A true-to-life novel of one of the few female post-Renaissance painters to achieve fame during her own era against great struggle. Artemisia Gentileschi led a remarkably "modern" life.  Vreeland tells Artemisia''s captivating story, beginning with her public humiliation in a rape trial at the age of eighteen, and continuing through her father''s 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 woman''s lifelong struggle to reconcile career and family, passion and genius.
Susan Vreeland is the New York Times bestselling author of eight books, including Clara and Mr. Tiffany and Girl in Hyacinth Blue. She died in 2017.
