R powerfully original treatments of mythic heroic female subjects depart radically from traditional interpretations of the same theme. I chose this book because I recently traveled to Florence and experienced the amazing immersion into Renaissance and Baroue art that city offers This is a difficult read I almost put it down but after page 200 I was glad I continued with the effort The writing style is initially ponderous academic and the subject matter disturbing brutality toward women emotional as well as physical abuse Yet I recommend this read Intensely researched and rewarding to the reader Anyone with an interest in art history feminism andor politics will be fascinated with this account of one female artist s life
