A Good Read. Władysław (Ladislas) Bakalowicz (Polish, 1833-1903/04). Oil on panel.

His most representative works are genre scenes drawn from 16th- and 17th- century French history, especially the court of Henry III Valois. Executed in oil, pastel, or watercolor, these small-scale compositions reveal Bakalowicz`s fondness for the realistic rendering of details of costume and interior.

Model reading. Harper’s Bazaar, June 1958. Sport Whirl. Photo by Louise Dahl-Wolfe.

Sport Whirl, founded in 1945 by Rubin Goodman, was a separates house, specializing in pieces that the consumer could mix and match. Sport Whirl clothing was not expensive, but Jeanne Campbell’s designs gave it a very fashionable image. Under her guidance, the company became a leader in the casual wear market, and was known for wearable, but imaginative, clothing.

Interior with Woman Reading. Poul Friis Nybo (Danish, 1869–1929). Oil on canvas.

This painting is typical of Nybo’s works where he depicts primarily single female figures in simple interiors with a variety of light sources. Here the woman reads at a plain table adorned only with a tablecloth and lamp. She sits in a wooden straight-backed chair and has only the soft lamp light to illuminate her book.
