1. The Reader (c.1890). Georges Croegaert (Belgian, Academic, 1848-1923). Oil.

    In a richly decorated interior, a lady reads with pleasure one of a number of books and papers immediately available to her in a corner made for reading in comfort. Her current book is well read, as are others, as evidenced by the bent cover and rumpled pages. Her smile indicates her delight in the passage being read.
