Museum Monday 2018/2

detail of Woman with a Pearl Necklace by Johannes Vermeer; I saw it at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC as part of the exhibit Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting: Inspiration and Rivalry, which runs until 21 January, but it normally can be found in Berlin, at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Gemäldegalerie

Interesting that your detail photo, focusing just on face and hands, makes me realize for the first time that she looks more like a young girl dressing up in her mother's clothes and jewels.
