"The Passion of Artemisia is both an entertaining and thought-provoking portrait of this admirable pioneering spirit. Susan Vreeland has a natural sympathy for her subject and is adept at portraying human bonds strained by artistic demands. The novel sparkles wothout being shallow, portrays shaddows without being melancholy, and gives us a provileged glimps into an extraordinary woman's soul." Margaret George
