  1. If I counted correctly, there's only one man among all the pictures in the "reading outdoors" posts. Was that because more professional painters were men and they chose women as their models? Perhaps the perception was that women were more disposed to sit outside and read in their leisure time. Men's 'leisure' pursuits were active (hunting, golfing, sailing, etc.)

  2. None of that, it is that I am partial to portraits of women & children. I know it is a little unfair, but that's it.
