Arte was born into an aristocratic family in Florence during the 16th century Renaissance era. Being female, it was unheard of for one to become an artist. Driven by her love of art, Arte is willing to cast aside her aristocratic lifestyle to become an artist.

It's a rare thing for a manga to move me in the way that Arte has managed to in fewer than 40 chapters, so this seemed like a good place to write my first manga review.

The titular character Arte is really the only character who needs to be discussed in this format. While the supporting cast's stories range from fun to gut-wrenching to heartwarming, Arte herself is the real standout. Her role within the story is probably most comparable to a character like Paddington (from the film duology of the same name). She's a sort of ray of sunshine who causes major revelations read more

Occasionally, after a long time reading and exploring different mangas, you are bound to hit a jackpot. "Arte" is a true MASTERPIECE.

*If you love the theme that relates to stepping out of your comfort zone or overcoming social limitations as a woman, this manga is definitely for you.

Story: Easy 10

1. Feminism
2. Historically Real (in terms of society, hierarchy, lifestyle, and culture)
3. Slice of life (heartwarming and encouraging)
4. Overcome Limitations and Challenges
With all of these factors combining together flawlessly, it is not easy to give this manga's story set up a low rating. Don't want to get into the story read more

Arte is a rare gem of a manga and I'm so glad I found it. It follows the intrepid travels of a young girl set on being a famous painter in Italy ala Da Vinci-style - The only problem is she's a female and god forbid women can be painters.

The story is wholesome and explores the bends & turns of society in Renaissance Italy. it provides as deep a social commentary as manga can provide (which is still pretty shallow); but nevertheless, it's a refreshing breath of fresh air - Story 9/10

Arte has lovable and sweet characters. Side characters are given their fair share of read more

This manga is one of the greatest and heartwarming mangas i have ever read. I can't believe it's not famous yet. It is so amazing i don't know where to start. The main character is resilient (not just strong physically or mentally), she is determined and smart and I found myself being inspired by her more than once. I never thought I would be so emotionally invested in a character. I love how there is no big rush for the romance (you can tell that it's building up to something) and that factor stops the story from becoming into another annoying cliche. I would recommend read more
