January's bookish art...

Pablo Picasso -- Woman With a Book, 1932

"Books are the great loves of my life.
They make me laugh and weep and question and reflect on things.
They allow me to escape from myself.
They've changed me."
--Gael Faye

  10. Great quote! I love the picture, although I'm confused on why Picasso has the lady's breasts sticking out of her top. It looks uncomfortable. Ha!!!!!
