this really seems to be inconnu - i can*t find a piece of information about it on the internet! my friend (who has the painting as a poster in her living room) and i were argueing whether this reading girl is supposed to be pregnant, or not - i think she looks it! usually this kind of stuff can easily be found on the net - but hennig doesn't even have a wikipedia entry. we were very much surprised! anyway, if anyone knows the answer, i'd be glad to know!
