Reading, 1888

EDITORS COMMENTS
by Frederick Childe Hassam is a captivating oil painting that transports us back to the enchanting atmosphere of the late nineteenth century. In this intimate portrait, we find ourselves in a serene garden setting, where a woman sits comfortably on a chair with her loyal canine companion at her side. The artist's impressionistic style beautifully captures the essence of leisure and relaxation as the woman engrosses herself in a book. The vibrant flowers blooming in nearby pots add an element of natural beauty to the scene, enhancing its tranquility. Hassam's attention to detail is evident in every brushstroke, from the intricate floral patterns on the woman's dress to her peaceful expression while dozing off during her reading session. The use of light and color creates an inviting ambiance that invites viewers to immerse themselves in this momentary escape from reality. This American impressionist masterpiece not only showcases Hassam's exceptional talent but also serves as a window into domestic life during this era. It reminds us of simpler times when people took pleasure in quiet moments spent outdoors surrounded by nature. As we gaze upon "Reading, 1888" we are reminded of the timeless joy found within literature and how it can transport us to different worlds even amidst our own busy lives. This remarkable artwork continues to captivate audiences today with its delicate portrayal of human connection and appreciation for leisurely pursuits.
