A Light of Her OwnBook - 2018
Holland, 1633. Judith Leyster is a painter, dodging the law and whispers of murder in hopes of becoming the first woman admitted to the prestigious Haarlem artists guild. Maria is a Catholic in a country where the faith is banned, hoping to absolve her sins by recovering a lost saints relic. Both womens destinies will be shaped by their ambitions, running counter to the citys most powerful men, whose own plans spell disaster. A vivid portrait of a remarkable artist, a story of grit against the backdrop of Rembrandts and repressive religious rule.
