I have been interested in learning more about Artemisia Gentileschi for a few years no, ever since I used to listen to Feminist Backtalk all the time, whose host loved Artemisia's story and talked about her frequently. I even backed a different graphic biography on Kickstarter, and was a bit confused when I saw this one at the library. I had to check it out.

This was heavier on the "the times" than I expected, and there were some times when I got a little impatient with ALL the details — being a graphic novel had given me some expectations about how academic/rigorous/thorough I expected the book to be, and it took a little time to break out of those expectations. Breezy this book is not — both on account of the subject matter and how seriously the author takes all of it.

Basically, I learned so much more than I expected to. About Artemisia (I am using her first name because she was not the only artist in the family, though I think it's safe to say she is now the most remembered), art, and the Renaissance. I appreciated the perspective brought by the author — also a woman, artist, and survivor of sexual abuse. Unabashedly feminist, this book is up-front about its biases, and also exhaustively researched.

A fascinating bit of history to shine new light on what we think we know about the past. ( )

I frequently whine that graphic novel biographies are too brief and don't provide enough context for the subject's life, but man does this one go overboard in the other direction. Giant blocks of text nearly squeeze the art out of the panels as we are introduced to every person who touched the life of Artemisia Gentileschi and all the political movements that were going on in the places where she lived.

The first half of the book is fairly interesting as the focus on the Italian painter's personal life is stronger, detailing her rape by one of her father's painting peers and the extended trial that followed. Much of the original testimony was preserved in transcript form and is utilized here.

Having used up the most compelling original source material, the second half devolves into a recitation of facts, names, and places as the captions truly get out of control. And there are 40 dreary pages of endnotes awaiting obsessive book completists like me.

The art is fine, but Siciliano tends to have her characters staring face forward out of the panel at the reader way too often. ( )
