  1. I wonder if there was a problem with women reading newspapers - could they become radicalised? bored with their home life? more learned than their husbands? I love your selection of paintings, but I do wonder why most of the women are alone. Mary Cassatt's Women Reading in the Garden (1880) is gorgeous as ever.

  2. Great selection , wonder world. Thank you
