The Young Vermeer
Mauritshuis Royal Picture Gallery, The Hague, Netherlands
May 12 - August 22, 2010
"The exhibition unites three paintings from the beginning of Vermeer’s artistic career: the Mauritshuis’ Diana and her Nymphs of c. 1653-1654, is joined by Christ in the House of Martha and Mary (c. 1655) from the National Gallery of Scotland in Edinburgh, and The Procuress (1656) from the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen in Dresden."
"Together with Vermeer’s later View of Delft (c.1660) and Girl with a Pearl Earring (c.1665) in the Mauritshuis’ permanent collection, the exhibition includes no less than five of the master’s paintings. Within this context, the differences between Johannes Vermeer’s early and late work also emerge clearly."
