A book can stop time, transcend circumstances, conjure a world in which to lose oneself. The paintings in this calendar achieve the same things: just as the reading woman has temporarily set herself free from her life's narrative, we can leave ours as we contemplate her image. Each of these twelve paintings--by such artists as Mary Cassatt, Winslow Homer, and John Singer Sargent--offers a unique interpretation of the enigmatic story of the reading woman, accompanied by a quotation about this engrossing pastime.
