Fionnuala Brennan’s novel The Painter’s Women is for anyone interested in art, storytelling, and the life of a most challenging artist.
“From the six female narrative voices that comprise The Painter’s Women, there emerges an intriguing portrait of the artist Francisco de Goya. A complex character who insisted that his deafness made him see more clearly, Goya dominates the novel. Ambitious and difficult, unfaithful and generous, uncompromising and volatile: we see the man and the influences, both personal and political, that underpinned such masterpieces as Los Desastres de la Guerra and Los Caprichos.” —Catherine Dunne
“The Painter’s Women is a Cubist view of Goya. Fionnuala Brennan creates shards of the great painter as viewed by the women who competed with one another for a slice of his affections. Rich in historical detail and powerfully atmospheric, The Painter’s Women is as dark, passionate and haunting as a Goya masterpiece.” —Mary Morrissy
“An original and impressive novel that carries its learning lightly and makes for compelling and enjoyable reading.” —Marie Heaney
