When holding open a book I'm reading, I keep the three center fingers of my left hand on the cover side [supporting the book], with my pinky and thumb at the lower portion of the printed page. [thumb on the left, pinky on the right, holding the pages in place] My right hand remains free to turn pages or lend an assist to holding the book. The identical position seen in "Jeune Fille". From the artist's vantage point, her pinky has partially vanished to the unseen side of her book.


This is such an interesting painting!
