The reading woman has been a popular subject for painters through the ages. She is, in herself, an expression of important, unspoken cultural ideas. She is at leisure, and that she is using her leisure to read indicates that she is educated—no small feat in centuries past. The women portrayed in this notecard assortment share their love of reading with children, creating another generation of readers. Just as the reading woman sets free her imagination and becomes absorbed in the written words before her, so can we briefly enter the world depicted in each painting and take part in its narrative. Contains five each of the following notecards: Reading by Alberto Pisa Alice in Wonderland by George Dunlop Leslie A Russian Folk Tale by Leonid and Olga Tikhomirov Woman Reclining on a Bench by Carl Olof Larsson.
