I have had a postcard of this wonderful painting for several years. Probably at least a decade or more. When I decided to make it the focus of my Sunday Painting today I looked at the artist’s website and was happily surprised to see that she has done many book related paintings. She even did a six-panel mural at New York University that shows the bookish surroundings of six different writers. This one below is of Edith Wharton but she also did one for Zora Neale Hurston, Jane Jacobs, and three others. You can see them all here.
