Being neither a If you are unaware of Artemisia Gentileschi, then I can only say: shame on you! LaPierre is heavy on the history revealing the life of Artemisia and also that of Baroque Italy, art, the artist lifestyle, etc.

Have no fear though; the reader definitely gets to know each personality on an intimate level. Furthermore, the settings are also well-described but not overdone and do not overwhelm.

Everything has a set place and natural flow. The novel feels very much alive and is a true page-turner during which the reader begs to know what happens even those familiar with the events. There are small annoyances, however; such as a few awkward transitions from pure historic sections to HF and the habit of asking the reader questions. The last quarter of the book feels comparatively weaker to the previous sections and is sort of like a different novel, entirely.

The novel is much recommended for a plethora of readers including: HF fans, history lovers, art enthusiasts, devotees of Baroque Italy and the Medicis, artists, and of course: lovers of Artemisia, herself.

Though God knows if those eyes really wanted to see. The roof-tops, dark with people, threatened to cave in. Bate-headed in the scorching heat, women and children were crushed together at windows, or on terraces and loggias. The three children and the second wife of the patrician Francesco Cenci had killed him with hammer blows to the head. By publicly executing every member of the family — despite the fact that their nobility gave them the right to a private execution — by subjecting them all, the women included, to the most appalling agonies, the Pope was sending a deliberate message to his barons: on the eve of the Jubilee, which would bring five hundred thousand pilgrims to the holy city, Pope Clement VIII wanted Rome to exemplify a new order, and to embody in the eyes of the world a model government.

Artemisia : a novel

Though God knows if those eyes really wanted to see. The roof-tops, dark with people, threatened to cave in. Bate-headed in the scorching heat, women and children were crushed together at windows, or on terraces and loggias. The three children and the second wife of the patrician Francesco Cenci had killed him with hammer blows to the head. The Pope was not just the spiritual head of Christendom, he was a temporal sovereign and absolute monarch, reigning over all the territories of the Church, which extended across the centre of Italy, between the Adriatic Sea and the Mediterranean.
