Walter Langley – A Maid of Brittany

I find this painting very appealing.  I first saw it over at Girl With Her Head in a Book.  Thanks!

Walter Langley is an English artist (1852-1922).  He was born in Birmingham and was what the English call working class.

Here in this painting we have a peasant girl leaning against a tree reading.  She has been carrying water and is wearing clogs.  Maybe she snatched a time out from that hard work!  What do you think she was reading?
