Woman with a Book is an eccentric representation on behalf of Cesare Catania: a middle-aged woman reading a book while sitting comfortably on the edge of a sofa. The posture of the woman in this painting shows the willingness and the character’s attention to what she is doing . The whole body is protracted on the pages, her careful and imperturbable look scroll the lines of the book regardless of what surrounds her.
Colorful clothes and a purple shawl over her left shoulder protect her from the cold.
