“The Picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde

Dear followers, a few days ago, while talking with Sara P. Lorenzo, a good friend and also an excellent psychologist, she recommended me this classic of literature. I have not yet read it, but she gave me the splendid suggestion to publish this post that links reading with painting and drawing. I’m hopeful you will like it.
