Reading Art Buffer
My reading has had to take a backseat to a few other things, so now that life has calmed down once more I find myself trying to catch up on advance reading copies. (I know. Tough job, ain't it?) Instead of the post I'd originally planned, I need a little art buffer, and here it is.
Not only does Thomas Hart Benton's painting put me in mind of the reading I want to do, but it's also of a famous person. Who is the man who's reading so intently while wrapping a protective arm around that stack of books? And why do I get the impression that hand would smack anyone who reached for one of those books?
Inquiring minds want to know!
