    One thought on “Blood Water Paint”

    1. I wish menwould decideif women are heavenlyangels on high,or earthbound sculpturesfor their gardensBut either way we re beautyfor consumption.This was really quite powerful and beautiful and devastating all at the same time It is based on the true story of Artemisia Gentileschi, an iconic painter from the seventeenth century.Blood Water Paint is written in verse for the majority of the novel with the exception of the stories of Judith and Susanna which are told in prose by Artemisia s mother, wh [...]

    2. This is a hard book to decently review It s a verse novel, first of all I think it s nigh impossible to review a verse novel well And this is not just a verse novel it is a book that gets its chief power out of emotionality and importance.If you ve read the blurb, you know this follows the story of 17th century painter Artemisia Gentileschi Or at least, the beginning of her story When she was seventeen, Artemisia had taken on most of the duties at her father s studio and was preparing to marry a [...]

    3. I wish men would decide if women are heavenly angels on high, or earthbound sculptures for their gardens Wow This book was so heavy and powerful and important Blood Water Paint is a historical novel told in verse following the life of 17th century painter, Artemisia Gentileschi, from the loss of her mother at an early age to her rape and the trial that followed Blood Water Paint is a moving story about women and power and resolve and it can t be praised enough.Things I LikedThis was so character [...]

    4. She is not small She is not weak She will never, ever be feebleminded And above all, she is outraged This was a hard book to read in than one way and I eventually just had to stop around the 75 percent mark because it was getting to be too painful I usually reserve two and one star ratings for books that I don t finish, but this was, honestly, an excellent book Just not for me Artemisia Gentileschi is one of my favorite artists and her story is astounding and inspiring, and I m sure Blood, Wate [...]

    5. I just finished this heart stopping debut and don t even quite have the words to describe it Joy McCullough s verse is spare and evocative, and her rendering of Artemisia is compelling But what really sets BLOOD WATER PAINT apart is the phenomenal exploration of women s stories and women s power or lack thereof The touches of surreal magic woven through add a depth and richness that turns this into the ultimate ode to a woman s incredible strength Highly recommended This novel reads very much li [...]

    6. I read an early version of this and Wow I ve read a lot of verse novels in my life, the poetry in this was one of the absolute best I couldn t put it down and it stayed with me for days Honestly, it s been six months since I read and I still find myself thinking about it This will haunt you in the best ways.

    7. Ellen Hopkins meets Ruta Sepetys in Joy McCullough s stunning debut novel Artemisia Gentileschi is one of the most famous female painters in history but first, she was a woman fighting for her own voice to be heard This novel in verse tells the tale of her teenage years, of her stumbles into the women who would become the subjects of her most famous paintings and of the rapist who would take everything from her Raw, unflinching, and ultimately hopeful, this is a must read and a masterclass in te [...]

    8. That was really incredibly done It s so beautifully historical but thoroughly modern at the same time, and so skillful at its depiction and articulation of the male gaze vs the female one This made me want to go out and learn everything possible about Artemesia, which is my absolute favorite result of historical fiction based on real people Just, so good.

    9. Beautiful This is mostly written in verse, which was new to me but my YA loving daughter tells me it s not that uncommon in young adult lit The main story, based on the true story of the 17th century painter Artemisia Gentileschi, is in verse, and the subplots about Bible characters Susanna the one spied upon in her bath by lecherous elders and Judith the one who cut off the enemy army leader s head are in prose I expected it to be hard to get into because it looks like poetry, but the story jus [...]

    10. It s not very often I read a book that understands much of the way my heart was broken so many years ago That holds my hand and cries with me That stands alongside me and stares the horror in the eye These are not stories we like to talk about, not monsters we like to expose to the light But they are stories that need to be told And this story is one of them BLOOD WATER PAINT is so powerful and empowering The poetry, the art, the strength, the horror the truth of what women go through every day [...]

    11. This book is a beautifully tragic retelling of the story of Artemisia Gentileschi, a painter living in 17th century Rome I cannot recommend it enough Written in verse, this book simultaneously reveals so much in very little words while also describing details commonly left out in storytelling I found that the verse style made the writing have a much greater impact on the reader, as it added a poetic feeling that flowed well but also showed the emotions of Artemisia in a way that made you feel yo [...]

    12. This is hard to read Not just because I m not usually a verse person, but because it s so painful and real Blood Water Paint is beautiful and haunting and it doesn t hold back It tells the story of the women who have long been objects for men and the ways they fight back a story that takes place in the past, but is painfully relevant today I wasn t familiar with Artemisia before this book came to my attention and I m so glad I ve been given a chance to get to know her through this book and hopef [...]

    13. Gutting and beautiful and devastating and wholly inspiring This is without a doubt the most powerful, timely novels I ve read this year and I m already eager to reread post release.

    14. I read an early version of this and was SO impressed The depth of feeling and the conviction of all of the women no spoilers, but the artist is influenced by others who have faced IMMENSE challenges is is a powerful, heartfelt, gritty, visceral story and the writing reflects that I believe it s the kind of novel that can save lives READ IT.

    15. 5 starsBased on the true story of the iconic painter, Artemisia Gentileschi, Blood Water Paint is a stunning debut in verse on feminism, rape, and justice in a historical setting.Artemisia Gentileschi s mother died when she was twelve and she now lives with her father, painting his commissions as he signs his name on her work Rome in 1610 is a dangerous place as men take what they want and Artemisia is faced with a choice between a life of silence or truth after her tutor takes advantage of her. [...]

    16. Well that was outstanding I suspect this will be a Morris finalist or winner, and a Printz honor or winner It s that good Lyrical and powerful A book that ll stick to my bones for a long long time.

    17. TW sexual assault, rapeThis verse novel will slice you up It s visceral, raw, and unique in that it tells a tragically all too familiar story about an important figure in the art historical world that many teens might not know of Artemisia Gentileschi McCullough interweaves the stories of two famous women and subsequent subjects of Artemisia s paintings , Susanna and Judith, to craft a distinctly female creative community and network of support during a time when there was none The stories of th [...]

    18. I read an early version of this gorgeous novel and it completely blew me away I can t wait to get my hands on the finished book Joy s writing grabs you by the heart and twists Prepare to be breathless and awe struck Seriously She s that goodVISED TO ADD I just read an ARC and whoa, it s even stunning and gripping than I remembered If you don t read historical fiction because you think it s not relevant, uh, hold onto your hat I wish it weren t so timely I hope there comes a time when it isn t I [...]

    19. I ve never read a verse novel before, but this was a fantastic way to take the plunge every word is perfectly chosen to immerse you in time, place, and feeling Deeply evocative of the bonds between women especially between mothers and daughters and the power of women s stories Heartbreaking, timeless, and inspiring.

    20. A bold, fresh, and inventive take on the story of Artemisia Gentileschi, the first female member of the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy Told in lyrical prose, we fall in love with painting through Artemisia s eyes, and weep for her when her gifts are taken from her by others Searing, brutal, painful, and passionate, this is a novel that screams with the power of its own voice.

    21. 5 stars Wow I think this book is what so many others try desperately to be provocative, insightful, consuming, and relevant This is the kind of genre and form blending that is as difficult to execute as it is thrilling to read While written in verse, Blood Water Paint follows a plot much like any prose, and while based on the history of female painter Artemisia Gentileschi, feels decidedly modern in its themes rape culture, feminism, justice etc I can definitely understand comparisons to Milk an [...]

    22. This book is written alternately in verse and in prose The verse is the young woman, Artemisia, so alive and vibrant, but struggling under the tutelage of her untalented painter father We get a picture of what it s like to be stuck She has to struggle to be the woman of the house all the while being the bread winner because her father s commissions need to be completed and she s the one to do them Alternately, the prose is the stories of her mother who died when Artemisia was young She is long g [...]
