A celebration of artworks featuring books and readers from throughout
history, for the delight of art lovers and bibliophiles As every book
tells a story, every book in art is part of an intriguing, engaging, and
relatable image. Books are depicted as indicators of intellect in
portraits, as symbols of piety in religious paintings, as subjects in
still lifes, and as the raw material for contemporary installations.
Reading Art spotlights artworks from museums and collections around the
globe, creating a gorgeous, inspiring homage to both the written word
and to its pivotal role in the visual world.
