Catullus book cover art featured at the Met!












Fans of both Ronnie Ancona's book, Writing Passion: A Catullus Reader, and Picasso can satisfy their itch for both by visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art's web site where Picasso's painting is today's featured image. The cover image, Girl Reading at a Table, was painted by Picasso in 1934 and is described by the Met as "a poem by a man in love". Sound familiar, Catullus readers?
