The reading girl is a very popular subject in Art history . The Fragonard's "Young Girl Reading" is one of them.
If you compare two paintings, it will be obvious the actual activity of reading is the only one thing in common. The color of Fragonard's Girl is subtle, subdued and the whole atmosphere is very quiet and full of book dust .. My "Sophie" is less formal and polished ..I wanted to show the illusory world, existed only in a mind of passion, curious and extraordinary soul.
