    The essays at the beginning of the book aren't really worth reading unless you're a dedicated art historian, however the essays that accompany the plates themselves are very informative, and the reproduction of the art is magnificent.

    This book is a great introduction to Artemisia’s life story and work. The essays in the beginning give a great idea about Artemisia’s character by detailing major events in her life. I also enjoyed pragmatic analysis of Artemisia’s work, and the accompanying text of the catalogue paintings provides further insight into her oeuvre.

    A wonderful source for the life and work of Artemisia presented in a sumptuous catalogue. The essays in the first half of the book are written by experts in their field and give an amazing insight into different aspects of Artemisia’s life. These are followed by beautiful plates of her work each individually described. A true delight of a book. 5 stars are insufficient.
