Jonathan Jones is art critic for The Guardian and the author of Sensations: The Story of British Art from Hogarth to Banksy, as well as The Loves of the Artists: Art and Passion in the Renaissance and The Lost Battles: Leonardo, Michelangelo and the Artistic Duel that Defined the Renaissance.
In the world and words of Jones's book, the 17th century could have
happened yesterday, it is urgent, immediate and very compelling. *

Jonathan Jones's highly readable Artemisia Gentileschi is the latest in the publisher Laurence King's 'Lives of the Artists' series. (...) Jones gives a lively account of her life and career, and his enthusiasm for her work permeates his writing: the descriptive passages on her paintings are especially evocative. * Apollo Magazine *
