In this breathtaking historical novel by the acclaimed author of the bestselling Frida, Barbara Mujica reimagines the dramatic life and loves of the Baroque Spanish painter Diego Velazquez. Narrated by the mysterious model who posed for "The Toilet of Venus," Velazquez s only surviving female nude, "I Am Venus" is the riveting account of a great artist s rise to prominence, set against the backdrop of political turmoil and romantic scandal. A sweeping story of scandal and passion, and a vivid recreation of a corrupt kingdom on the brink of collapse, "I Am Venus" is a thrilling novel that brings to life the public and private worlds of Spain s greatest painter."
