Impressionists paint women reading

I couldn't really think of a creative way to incorporate these into the design of my blog, but I liked them so much I thought I would save them for a separate post.
It looks like Renee Zellweger, but it's actually a Renoir.

I've never heard of this painter before (Fragonard) but I have to admire the woman's posture while sitting in that squishy armchair. And the sleeves!
I sit like this a lot when I'm reading, although my hair is not awesome like this.

All you really need to know about Fragonard is this: http://harikumar.brinkster.net/AllianceIssues/A2004/Fragonard.jpg
