Lisa Mee (b.1974, American) “The Reader” (2020) is a mixed media work of original acrylic, ink and metallic paint on canvas measuring 30 x 24 inches unframed and hand signed in the lower center. This is the artist’s own interpretation of Picasso’s 1932 oil painting of his lover Marie-Thérèse Walter, called “Woman with a Book.” Lisa’s contemporary expressionist version reflects her special creativity, light and wonderful use of bright colors. In her own words, Lisa provides this description: 'The Reader is simultaneously mysterious and graceful. Her lines, contours and lush patterns vibrate a radiant spectrum of colors. Picasso's Cubist aesthetic is obvious in this painting, yet I added more curvilinear shapes and forms to this figure to portray her as more feminine and approachable.' When Lisa first posted the image she wrote, “The Reader…has a bit of mystique…how tedious and pale this world would be without mystery!”
