Firenze, early 16th century. The birthplace of the Renaissance era, where art is thriving. In one small corner of this vast city, one sheltered girl's journey begins. She dreams of becoming an artist, an impossible career for a girl born into a noble family. In those days, art was an exclusively male profession, with woman facing strong discrimination. In spite of these challenges, Arte perseveres with hard work and a positive attitude!

    I don't think this manga tries to be a 1:1 adaptation of artemisia gentileschi but rather takes on the premise of what if a woman becomes a renaissance painter.
    The inspiration this manga takes is "woman named arte(misia) who painted in the early 16th century". The rest of the story is so divorced from reality it's almost an insult to the real story.
    What happened in the latest chapters? The latest volume cover is worrying.
    @Moraza: if I remember well, "Silent Manga Audition" was an "official" (if I remember well) translation group. They released a new chapter once a month so you were able to read the first one and the last one but I don't remember if for free or for registered members. Dunno if they are still alive or not but they dropped the Arte manga around chapter 10
    Where did the cover art of her w/ a child go? Or am I just blind?

    That's really annoying. Stuff like this makes it difficult to follow anything on mangadex, forcing me to turn other places to read something to completion.

    Per Baka-Updates, they were previously translated by a group called "Silent Manga Audition".... which doesn't appear to be a traditional group based on my 120 seconds of research.....

    Based on what I saw, my guess is that the early chapters were pulled due to this getting an official English release.
    @0181sam i was about to begin it and saw that comment , i just went through the wiki and sincerely hope the author is just basing it on this character and will not include this in it cause its just sad tbh and would not have a really relevent goal, i mean she end her life being regarded as a curiosity its only after her death that she was regarded as one of the best artist of her era.
    so it would be a really shitty ending, im reluctant to start it now but well i dont think the author is taking this route since Leo doesnt appear anywhere in the real story so i guess its just based on and just taking an original route
    is the romance good or its really a sub genre in this one ? @Panino

    Why are there so many chapters missing?
    "Arte" anime trailer #3:

    ...and a little bit of silliness - the voice actors for Arte and Leo attempt to "speed-draw" their characters:

    @SandiKurniaP An incredibly simplified explanation: If both parents have a recessive blond-hair gene, their child has a 25% chance of having blond hair.

    Brown; blond

    |BB| Bb|
    |Bb| bb|

    They wouldn't know the details during the Renaissance of course, but a blond child would likely not have been unheard of in noble circles, where family ties often crossed borders.

    Something of a pet peeve of mine : Catarina is a blonde despite the fact that both of her parents are dark-haired and nobody ever thought this weird?
    The second official trailer just dropped:
    I expect that with the anime in April this manga will receive a good boost in readers.
    Wow, this is one of the best Mangas I have read. Really loved it and I cannot wait for more. This is one of the few Mangas I have read that has made me want to get off my ass and work on my own passions.
    Manga chara design > anime, imo. Probably the classic 12 episode tv serie to better promote the manga.
    Just in case anyone didn't get the memo...
    The first official trailer for the "Arte" anime is up:

    i dont think there will be rape added lol
    i think that she was just an inspiration to make this story and not directly basing it on her life
    @0181sam I think it's based on Artemisia Gentileschi
