THE POETRY OF READING
If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use reading it at all.
Danish painter Peter Ilsted (1861-1933), like his brother-in-law Vilhelm Hammershoi (see: Wednesday’s blog), focused on interior spaces—peaceful and poetic scenes of everyday domestic life that also are reminiscent of the Dutch master Vermeer.
Irishman Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) not only loved literature, but he also was a brilliant writer of books and plays himself including The Importance of Being Earnest, Lady Windermere’s Fan, and the classic Picture of Dorian Gray.
