Been there, done that.


The New Novel by Winslow Homer, 1877, Museum of Fine Art, Springfield MA

This work is a favorite among avid readers and book clubs for obvious reasons. The orange of the dress and the girl's hair provide a warm contrast against the background dominated by shades of brown and green.

Winslow Homer is my favorite American artist. I particularly enjoy his watercolor works. The New Novel is really quite beautiful.

I have both of those images of women lying reading in a card set I bought. I love them, for their beauty, and because lying around reading is my all-time favorite thing to do!
Thanks for sharing them here.
