This Week's Header


This week's header is Mac's interpretation of Jean-Honore Fragonard's Young Girl Reading.  This was one of my Mother's favorite paintings and when I saw the original in the National Gallery in Washington I fell in love with it.  Fragonard has always been one of my favorite painters and I think Mac's copy more than does this painting justice.

  1. You don't often hear Fragonard mentioned but I've always loved his painting The Swing. This one I like even more - haven't come across it before. Mac has made a great job of it.

  2. Rowan, I love The Swing, years ago I had Mac paint that one too, but it's one of those paintings that through the years has disappeared.

  3. I love both those pictures too. The copy is lovely.
