I recently ran across a blog that was “offering’ a download of this painting (see above) to be used as a screen saver. It looked very familiar and after a little research I realized that it was by the 19th century Irish-American artist William M. Harnett. Many of his intensely detailed still life paintings incorporated books or other printed materials. The more I looked, the more I found.
