Reading Women


Two postcards sent by John (the UK) about a favourite topic

The postcard above shows a the painting Woman Reading (1921) by Leon Kamir-Kaufman, a 19th century Polish Artist. The postcard below is Meditation (c. 1871) by French painter Claude Monet (1840-1926). Both are in the Musée d'Orsay.

  1. The one bellow should be an 'almost reading' postcard. I'd include it in your series.

  2. Beautiful postcards!

    And funny how we can interprete a picture differently :-) I image the one below as 'just read': to my opinion she looks like she is overthinking the content of the, probably sad, book...

  3. When I saw the second postcard, I thought she had just finished the book, and she was sad because she had finished a good book (not necessarily sad).

    Yes: interpretations are funny! :)
