  1. Que legal! Obrigado por compartilhar! Valeu! beijos,chica

  2. My favourite is "Man seated by a Window" I don't know why really, there's just something about it, perhaps his connection with the outdoors.
    Sonia you must tell some background to that amazing banner photo! So intriguing.
    Have a wonderful weekend,

  3. Rose, my favourite is also "Man seated by a Window". Love it.

    I did a serie of posts about Books and Bookshelf with many photos of my blog friends's bookshelf. And I did a post about "The Book Cell Project by Matej Krén", that you can see
    Here. His work is just amazing!
    Have a pleasant weekend too.

  4. Sorry, the link did not works.
    The correct is:

  5. Sonia, that banner shot is stunning. Where what is that?

  6. Hi Ken Mac, I did a post about this artist, and you can see his works clicking The Book Cell Project by Matej Krén.

  7. You're back -- you've been missed! I'm a huge fan of Marcel Duchamp -- for his art, of course, but also for his humor. And Cezanne. Thank you for posting, and we'll wait for word on the banner.

  8. Thank you Sonia I followed the link and read about Matej Kren (fascinating).

  9. Oh...How WONDERFUL! I LOVE them all, but I must say, that very first one is so incredibly beautiful! What a treat, Sonia....To see so many fantastic paintings all together! Thank You, my dear....!

  10. What a beautiful painting by James McNeill Whistler. How reading is an inspiring matter!

  11. Mix feelings with this Book cell project/exhibit though!

  12. Brilliant & captivating paintings from famous painters. Thanks for sharing these lovely images. Have a great week end Sonia.

  13. What a great series of paintings. I love reading, it's one of my favorite things, whether it's a paperback book or an old classic on my Nook. I can get so lost in a book and completely forget about my sometimes frustrating life!

  14. What a great idea for a post! I really enjoyed it and will go and check out that other blog. You know I like books and reading the best of all.

  15. Querida, like so many readers I want to know about your banner photo! Is it on the link you provided? I will check. It's gorgeous. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Reading perhaps? Beijos e abracos pra voce e Carlos tamben X

  16. such beautiful paintings - they bring a feeling of relaxation. :)

  17. Your header photo is stunning!
    Love all the paintings. Beautiful and restful.

  18. Such lovely pictures of readers!
    I love reading almost as much as taking photos.
    Greetings and love from New York.
    Buster says hi!

  19. Imagine what life was like BEFORE books!!
    What are you reading at the moment, Sonia?

  20. Hello Georgia and Letitia,

    I have the habit of reading many books at the same time... This year I had been reading many books.
    Now there are three on my bedside table:
    1) "Too much happiness: stories" by Alice Munro. Just great stories! (In Portuguese, means "Felicidade Demais".)
    2) "Sunset Park", by Paul Auster, the same title in Portuguese. I had been reading many books of Paul Auster. Love principally "The Invention of Solitude" ("A Invenção da Solidão") and "Timbuktu". Timbuktu is about the life of a dog, Mr Bones, who is struggling to come to terms with the fact that his homeless master is dying. Love it!
    3) "Please Look After Mom", by Kyung -Sook Shin. ("Por favor Cuide da Mamãe".) Reading this author for the first time.

    That question of you both give me an idea of a post!

  21. Sou uma eterna apaixonada pelas Artes Sonia.Amo as pinturas , fico horas admirando vendo cada traço .
    São lindas as que escolheu com tema de Leituras_ grandes pintores.
    um abraço

  22. Sonia, thanks for sharing these marvellous paintings! I like so much Renoir and Cézanne!
    I'll go to read the BIBLIOKLEPT blog.
    Greetings from Turin!

  23. Thanks very much for your several kind comments today!

    And so I'm back here. You have such a lovely blog. Looking at these paintings, one is again convinced that calling them "masters" is not misguided!
