For a few weeks now Vermeer’s Women – secrets and silence, is sitting at my coffee table. It is a wonderful book with lots of pictures of beautiful 17th century paintings. A book I more or less fell in love with while flipping through its pages time and time again. Some of my most favorite Dutch masterpieces are depicted inside.
In fact this book is a catalogue of an exhibition. The paintings depicted were on show in The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, Mass. last winter. A show I, unfortunately, missed entirely.
