Michel Garnier
La Lettre, 1791
Oil on canvas

The young woman in this painting is not reading the book on the table but a love letter she has just received from an admirer. She holds a gold locket that came with the letter in her left hand. In her excitement, she has dropped the envelope on the floor and stood up to read the letter. Do you get excited when you get mail? What do you think the letter says?
