Collage on canvas of Christine de Pisan, a 15th century European writer, often cited as the first female Western novelist. Note that she is shown reading a book and is dressed in blue to show her purity.

Let me add that there is a slight glare in the photo you are viewing. I am dealing with new equipment and have not yet mastered all the details of editing.
