£11.00 £5.50 inc. Vat


Artists have been painting the reading woman for hundreds of years. Typically found in a summer garden or a luxurious drawing room, these fashionable women have the time and means to indulge their love of the written word. Novels, newspapers, letters, and poetry all find their way into portraits of elegant women by artists including Claude Monet, Édouard Manet, and Mary Cassatt. Quotations from women about the value of reading accompany the artworks.
