collecting colours over a cup of coffee...

If you are a lover of printed words, you would know how much of your time is taken by books alone. Then one day, sooner or later, you discover a huge vacuum within that you know next to nothing about other art forms. This blog is an attempt to fulfil one such lacunae in the art of painting. We intend to look up a random painting and upload it with a link here every day whilst having our daily cuppa coffee. In this way at least we hope to be better acquainted with colours, colourers and the schools than what we are now.If you wish to be a part, you know where to shout.

Woman Reading [5]

Woman Reading, Mary Cassatt

This is a good series. Any particular reason for this?

No particular reason, though it must be said that a search for paintings of people reading led to discovering several amazing works of art - of various kinds of people reading various kinds of reading material (books, newspapers, letters).

During the process of savouring the results of that search, it struck me that there were so many works of women reading and what's more, so many of them were even titled 'Woman Reading'. So I just used the title as a convenient filter to pick up the selections for this week.
