Art Book Club: Fierce Dreamer (Artemisia Gentileschi)
October 28, 2021
7:00 - 8:00 PM
Fierce Dreamer (Artemisia Gentileschi) by Linda Lafferty
In-person at CMA
It’s hard to believe that in 10 years, the CMA Art Book Club has never read a book about Artemisia Gentileschi. But when Linda Lafferty’s book Fierce Dreamer was published in May 2020, it seemed like the perfect way to explore the life of the 17-century artist.
“Lafferty has infused her characters with the chiaroscuro evident in Artemisia’s paintings, along with a full range of emotional. It’s a gripping story of love, lust, envy and artistic genius. Artemisia was a ‘fierce dreamer’ and centuries ahead of her time.” –Historical Novels Society
