Of the approximately thirty-four paintings accepted as authentic works by Johannes Vermeer, the Frick owns three. This elegantly packaged set of notecards features all three canvases, showcasing Vermeer’s dazzling treatment of light, use of space, and depiction of psychological nuances. The subjects include courtship, music-making, and letter writing, all of which were popular themes in seventeenth-century Dutch art.
