Vermeer's Women.On our way down south we stopped off at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge to see their (misleadingly titled) exhibition |
It's built around the Louvre's loan of The Lacemaker. It contains four paintings by Vermeer- and aims to put him in context as a genre painter. The revelation of the exhibition is an artist I'd never come across before- Jacobus Vrel- whose pictures of women in high, empty rooms are wonderfully strange.
