Jeune fille lisant (1921-22). Magnus Enckell (Finnish, 1870-1925).
In the first years of the 20th century, under the influence of post- impressionism, Enckell developed a brighter, more colorful palette. An example of this is this work, done in dark, lively colors. Together with Verner Thomé and Ellen Thesleff, Enckell founded the group Septem, in which artists who shared his beliefs came together.

"The perfect dress for hours of coffee and cake and long stories. Crisp cotton with a romantic hook and eye closure down the front is best paired with leather boots and your favorite sweater."
