Blood Water Paint Reviews

    ”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 more 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 ...more

    ”I will show you

    what a woman can do.”


    Trigger warnings: sexual assault, misogyny, suicidal thoughts, violence, brief physical torture, victim-blaming, slut-shaming

    If I could tattoo the entirety of this novel on my body, I would. I’m always a little wary with books written in prose, but Blood Water Paint was absolutely gorgeous, and packed an incredible emotional punch. It pains me to think about how relevant this 400+ year old occurrence is to today’s events, and I’ll forever be enraged at the ...more

    Possibly the most powerful book I've ever read.

    “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.

    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 ev

    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.

    "Those men.

    These women who dare

    to judge

    your heart

    by your body

    will never have

    an ounce of your worth.

    Okay, okay, hear me out: a feminist young adult historical novel written in verse. About a female painter who wins a trial against her rapist - in 1612.

    This is the story of Artemisia Gentileschi, a young woman living in Rome with her family. Her father sells paintings signed with his name, even though it is Artemisia who does all the work. Her mother, long dead now, once told her goodnight-stories
