  1. Interesting painting, maedez. Looking at the Venus’ pose, she could be doing the same thing as the standing woman – if she had arms. Love those cozy rooms with all their patterns and of course, always the books.

    • That is a very astute observation, Judy. Looking at the painting again, I totally agree. Oh, and I am such a sucker for scenes like this one-especially during autumn and winter!

  2. I think you are totally off base – she is looking out of the picture at someone. It is Horace, her lover, who is reading another book. And she is all dressed up and saying “Let’s go! The carriage is waiting! Cousin Sophia expects us at three. I know you don’t like Sophia, but you have to buck up.”
