A Young Girl Reading, or The Reader, is an 18th century oil painting by Jean-Honoré Fragonard. The painting was given to the National Gallery of Art by the daughter of Andrew W. Mellon following her father's death. The painting features an unidentified girl wearing a yellow saffron dress, though x-rays have revealed that the canvas originally featured a different image which Fragonard painted over. It is one in a series of paintings by Fragonard featuring young girls.
