Product Description & Reviews
A painter's life and work, under constant ambush by the disease Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, is described with an insistence on love, memory, and creativity. Unique both as autobiography and as encouragement, Jude Clarke's graceful, poignant portrayal is accompanied by full-colour reproductions of her paintings reflecting her personal growth during her long struggle with Lupus. Illness and despair find their counterbalance in Clarke's exploration of the roots of self in memory, place, and family. The perfect book for those who suffer directly or indirectly from this difficult malady, The Language of Water is also a compelling work of literary autobiography that examines the intricate issues of women's health and creative expression.

Hailed as one of the most influential and expressive painters of the seventeenth century, Artemisia Gentileschi (1593–ca. 1656) has figured prominently in the art historical discourse of the past two decades. This attention to Artemisia, after many years of scholarly neglect, is partially due to interest in the dramatic details of her early life, including the widely publicized rape trial of her painting tutor, Agostino Tassi, and her admission to Florence’s esteemed Accademia del Disegno.
