7. (L) Gemma Ward, Lisbon, British Vogue, 2005; (R) Portrait of Maritge Claesdr. Vooght, Frans Hals, 1639

TD: Mario’s image depicts a woman reading from the Bible, sitting on a chair, like the ‘Portrait of Maritge Vooght’. So pious as she sits there, whereas Mario depicts her at a younger age – quite naughty. Reading, but what is she
reading? It can’t be the Bible.
