Fine Art Friday

"The Reader"
Mary Cassatt

So, I couldn't help but post another reading picture when I came across this one. Mary Cassatt is a favorite American artist of mine, yet I was unfamiliar with this picture. 

I like this lady's comfortable pose. She holds the book at the same distance I do. And I like propping my arm up on something too. Whatever her reading material, it looks like a journal. 

I like the delicate blueness of the scarf and cuff ruffles. That blue combined with her dark red hair work well with such a light background. Cassatt could really create texture using a basic color.
