The portrait “Interrupted Reading” can have many different interpretations, one of which is posted on its description at the Art Institute of Chicago or given to us in class:  She has the look of a depressed woman. Jean Baptiste Camille Corot was thought to find these types of women attractive and that is possibly why he painted her in this fashion.

In my opinion, it seems as though “Interrupted Reading” is a portrait that is used to show many different things. It can be interpreted as boredom and fatigue, possibly due to the notion that in the timeframe when the piece was painted, many women were not able to attend school or read. Since this is mostly true, that many be one of the reasons that her arm stands out so much in the portrait.It could also possibly show that the woman is educated, since she is well dressed and is holding a book. If this is the case, then her arm could show that women were strong and had the power to do what they please.

Finding these different interpretations was difficult to do since many of the articles related to the painting dealt directly with the artist himself, not the painting. When I was able to find sources that discussed the painting, it was hard to distinguish whether or not they were credible or not as well.
