Who's the painting by?
Jean-Honoré Fragonard -- it's called "A Young Girl Reading" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Young_Girl_Reading ).
Thanks! It's possible I saw the original ~10 years ago but I don't remember it.
In the National Gallery in Washington, D.C.? Cool!
Yeah - I think it must have been late 2005, actually. I was in Alexandria, just across the Potomac for my first ever scientific conference.
That sounds great!

I didn't know the painting hung there, but it caught my eye and I just love it. :)
I love it, too -- I've used it as an illustration in the past / elsewhere, too, that's why I looked it up.
