“Wonderful women! Have you ever thought how much we all, and women especially, owe to Shakespeare, for his vindication of woman in (his) fearless, high-spirited, resolute and intelligent heroines?”
(Dame Ellen Terry)
Which heroines might we find by peeking over the shoulders of the women depicted here? And what might those selections tell us about the women themselves?
 
This collection of artworks from American, European, and Russian artists of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries presents a cornucopia of images on a single subject: a woman reading. Yet how varied that one idea can be: From lush gardens and summer seashores to grand sitting rooms or stark interior scenes, women steal a moment—or an hour or a day—to read.
 
Each image in this calendar is accompanied by a brief quote about books and reading.
