Format: Hardcover
I saw the pre published text and met with the author. Here is a fully comprehensive, wonderfully detailed, and beautifully created book that clearly reflects an exacting 'lifetime labor of love' from Ward Bissell. I heartily recommend this book to all scholars, educators, students, collectors, dealers and appreciators of art in general and Artemisia in particular. Bissell has given us the definitive word on Artemesia Gentileschi with his work.

Format: Hardcover
I plan to use both the Bissell and the Garrard book on Artemisia Gentileschi in my Baroque Art History class this Spring. Since these authors often interpret both works and life events rather differently, students should find the comparison stimulating.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Theseus on October 30, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Other reviewers have commented on the authority of breadth of Bissell's work here. This review comments on the book itself.

A quality piece of work from The Pennsylvania State University Press: hardback, cloth over boards with a sturdy sewn binding. In dustjacket. 446 pp of creamy stock, followed by over 200 (mostly) full-page plates, largely in b&w. 5 pounds!

4 Appendices, about 20 pp of End Notes, and a 10 p Bibliography. Indexed.

The organization here is essentially 130 pp of biographical and aestethetic text followed by a superb Catalogue Raisonne.
