Ornate, traditional library. Lots of decorative wood, carved mouldings, patterned parquet floor, antique style lighting. It is based on the New York Medical Academy Reading Room in Manhattan. I placed myself in the painting as if I had made a discovery in one of the old rare books. I enjoyed painting the 2 different colored lights, the blue tinged light scattering in from the outside, and the yellowish light from the incandescent fixtures illuminating the room from inside.
