Georges d'Espagnat (1870-1950), The Reader, Oil on canvas
This highly intimate depiction of a woman reading is hauntingly romantic in its smoky hues and vaporous tonalities. Her gaze invites us into a space ambiguously defined by a series of loose brushstrokes, yet her darkened eyes, rosy cheeks and sensuous mouth are highly contrasted in hue and bring the viewer into her personal space. The light that seemingly emanates from her white corsage adds a softness to the pictorial surface and highlights the central figure in the composition.
