Beautiful composition with the shadows, lights, horizontal and vertical lines, and of course the human figure as the main object of this composition. I like the way in which the woman sits and her face full of concentration while reading. The whole composition looks like painting by a master, but unfortunately in black and white colors. Yes, it would be sad if they (old masters) had painted only in shades of black and white. Many things we would have to guess when less colors. FAV!!!
