A fictional title based on the life of Italy's most famous female artist, Artemisia Gentileschi from the author of "Girl In Hyacinth Blue". Telling a scandalous and dramatic story "The Passion Of Artemisia" takes Gentileschi through friendship and patronage to rape, toruture and betrayal. "Fascinating... an ingenious fragment of imagined autobiography... a story that has a resonance with Artememsia's time and yet is wholly contemporary" "The Times".

Synopsis:

From patronage by the Medicis, friendship with Galileo and beautiful and original paintings to rape by her father's colleague, torture by the Inquisition, struggles for acceptance by the artistic establishment and betrayal by the men she loved, Artemisia was a woman who lived as she wanted.
