Artwork Title: The Reading Woman - Artist Name: Georges Croegaert

The Reading Woman

Georges Croegaert, 1888

"The highly realistic depictions of Croegaert of society women have usually a slightly ironic undertone. This is clear in his wink at the contemporary fashions of Japonism and Orientalism in his paintings of The Reading Woman and Dreams of the Orient, where the women depicted appear overcome by their infatuation with Japanese and Oriental art."
