I'm a big fan of Vermeer as well.
The last portrait is wonderful. You can fully see he is a man who "must be pleased"!


The Vermeer doesn't have the usual ethereal, misty atmosphere that is evident in images such as Woman in Blue Reading a Letter(1662-3), Woman Holding a Balance(1664), or my personal favorite, Young Woman with a Water Pitcher(1664-5). I think the crystallized environ shows the woman's profession perfectly.

I had the privledge to view many Singer-Sargents when I visited London last month. There was a special exhibit on Americans in Paris at the National Gallery. I drooled in front of Madame X and her rouged earlobes.


I love your photographs and your studies of color through art, thank you for this, your blog is always such a peaceful place to visit.


I love the Carl Larsson . . . I adore his paintings! (Vermeer, too.)
