Notes

Summary:
In this painting Vermeer went beyond mere genre painting to produce a rich allegory of painting in a double sense. For all the numerous allegorical tools of Baroque art, the painting still might not be convincing were it not a masterpiece of pure painting. From a darkened room, one looks past a parted curtain, past the intentionally oversized chair into the luminous studio of the artist. The rich dress of the painter seen from behind is strangely old-fashioned.
