  1. When I first saw this (no, I didn’t submit it), I was reminded of the Alan Rickman thread because in ‘January Man’, he is painting a nude model who is . . . reading. Very much in the same position, and I wonder if whoever planned the movie had seen this painting. I guess we’ll never know . . .

  2. A challenge of painting people is that they have to hold still for a long time while the painting is composed and executed. Because of this, figures are often posed in postures where they will be comfortable staying still, and placed in contexts where staying still makes sense. Just part of the reason why you don’t see a lot of paintings of people doing 1-handed handstands.
