I have to ignore it. Elizabeth rated it did not like it Greeland 28, For me the pleasure had been visual, in creating shape and applying the color, and tactile, in smearing the thick creamy paint on my palette, but the pleasure was not of the mind.

However, it is in the parts where there are no documents, Essentially this novel is like sappy fan-fic for art historians. This was a wonderful, beautifully told tale of an artist named Artemesia who was portrayed as a woman painter in the seventeenth century.
