"Vreeland's remarkable ability to portray with lyricism and intelligence the life of the artist both at its most practical and most sublime makes this novel an accomplished work of art."
——San Francisco Chronicle
"Vreeland has burrowed deeply into the mind of the artist and produced a vivid cast of female characters."
"A privileged glimpse into an extraordinary woman's soul."
"Susan Vreeland set a high standard with Girl in Hyacinth Blue.... The Passion of Artemisia is even better.... Vreeland's unsentimental prose turns the factual Artemisia into a fictional heroine you won't soon forget."
