Women Reading

Georges d’Espagnat (1870-1950), Liseuse sur un canapé

Hello Fellow Readers– In art and life– women reading books is one of my favorite themes.  I realized this when I noticed that on our living room gallery wall there were three prints that included women reading books.

Here’s just one of them hanging there– “The New Novel” by Winslow Honer (1836-1910)

So imagine my delight when I happened across a tumblr that was dedicated to paintings old and new, as well of photographs of just that, women reading books.  It makes you wish you could sit and ask each one about who they are and what they are reading…
