THE READING WOMAN 2021 WALL CALENDAR

$14.99

13in x 12in

Description

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 such as Claude Monet, Édouard Manet, and Mary Cassatt. This calendar includes twelve contemplative images, and quotations from women about the value of reading accompany the artworks.
