Between exhibiting all over the world and garnering a stellar reputation for her ethereal paintings and fashion illustrations, NY-based artist Samantha Hahn has produced a collection celebrating fiction’s most beloved heroines.
Well-Read Women, published last week by Chronicle Books, features fifty watercolour portraits of literature’s iconic leading ladies, each accompanied by a hand-lettered quotation.
Clarissa Dalloway, the eponymous heroine of Virginia Woolf‘s Mrs. Dalloway
Scarlett O’Hara from Margaret Mitchell‘s classic, Gone with the Wind
Dorothea Brooke from George Eliot‘s Middlemarch
Edna Pontellier from The Awakening by Kate Chopin
And everyone’s favourite girl detective, Nancy Drew
