Johannes Vermeer was officially baptized on this day in 1632. This Dutch Master produced less than 40 works in his career and brought enigmatic emotion to intimate domestic scenes.
Don’t miss this rare chance to see his "Young Woman Seated at a Virginal," temporarily on view in gallery 264. It is the only remaining canvas by this great Dutch master to be in private hands."Young Woman Seated at a Virginal," 1670–72, by Johannes Vermeer
