Interior with a Girl Reading (1903). Carl Vilhelm Holsøe (Danish, 1863-1935). Oil on canvas. Statens Museum for Kunst - Copenhagen.
This work is typical of Holsøe’s introverted figures, though darker than most of his similar works. As the window is in front of the girl, the strong light that falls on her back and brightens the book page must come from another window behind her outside of the frame of the picture.
