Helene, lisant by Henri Rouart
The full title of this painting is 'Helene, fille de l'artiste, lisant, rue Lisbonne.' Henri Rouart (1833-1912). Rouart's daughter was often his model. Reading would be an excellent way to pass the time while sitting for a portrait. Painting is from a private collection, currently on exhibit at the Musee Marmottan Monet in Paris.
