A book can stop time, transcend circumstances, and take the reader away from the everyday. And the reading woman herself is a complex story that has fascinated generations of artists.
This diary presents twenty exquisite paintings that span six centuries and three continents. Artists include well-known masters such as Degas and Cassatt, along with sometimes anonymous painters from centuries past. Well-chosen words on the pleasures of reading, from historic and contemporary female writers and readers alike, accompany each image.
