Young woman reading (1919). Sergei Vinogradov (Russian, 1869-1938). Oil on canvas. 
Vinogradov took part in the creation of the “Union of Russian Artists” in 1903. It united Russian painters of the beginning of the 20th century and, being based on the achievements of 19th century Russian art in landscape and genre, enriched the country’s painting with a new understanding of color and light that was close to Impressionism.

Reading is a thing of beauty, and a fantastic subject for work of art.

Do they sense it, these dead writers, when their books are read? Does a pinprick of light appear in their darkness? Is their soul stirred by the feather touch of another mind reading theirs? I do hope so.
