As an art historian, I have been stroken by Anna Banti's Artemisia, a book that - while narrating the biography of the outstanding artist Artemisia Gentileschi - reenacts the context of her life and world, reaching the core of her painting. The author Anna Banti - a pen name glossing over Lucia Lopresti - is able to deeply mix the style of the 17th century woman painter with her own style, the historical documents with her lively points of view. The book is a very fruitful model of researching and writing on art history, producing vivid images without loosing precision.
