This event has ended.

Among the 30 or so works by Vermeer that still survive today, it is his paintings of letters, with their evocation of quiet drama in the midst of daily life, that occupy an important place in his oeuvre. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to view three of these masterpieces gathered in one place: "Woman in Blue Reading a Letter", "A Lady Writing", and "A Lady Writing a Letter with her Maid". These works will be displayed alongside other stellar paintings from the same period that highlight the distinctive gestures, facial expressions and emotional shifts that characterize 17th century Dutch society.
