Bookstore Art

I have seen the painting pictured above many times online, but I only just took the time to research the artist. Although the image is often labeled as Bookstore (woman reading), I’m not sure what the actual title should be. The wonderfully atmospheric work is by the late Dutch artist Willy Elize Belinfante-Sauerbier. She often painted images of browsers in Amsterdam and Rotterdam bookshops and book markets. I managed to track down a few other images of painting and prints from this long series. The next time that i visited the Netherlands, I’ll be certain to try and locate more of her work.
