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!

  1. Didn't know Harry Truman was a reader. Interesting.

    This artist was quite a painter.

  3. I think I did know about Truman being a reader and his wife as well. I maybe learned that as I read their daughter's books. Nice art!
