Johannes Vermeer. On Reflection
At the heart of the exhibition is the Dresden piece “Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window”, to be presented to the public for the first time following four years of restoration. Nine other paintings by Vermeer that are closely related to this picture will be arriving from all over Europe and the USA. Vermeer’s oeuvre is very small, with only about 35 works known today.
The high-class loans include “Woman Reading a Letter” and “Houses in Delft (The Little Street)” from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, “Woman Holding a Balance” from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, “A Young Woman Standing at a Virginal” from the National Gallery in London, “Diana and Her Companions” from the Koninklijk Kabinet van Schilderijen in the Hague, “The Geographer” from the Städel in Frankfurt, “Woman with a Pearl Necklace” from the Gemäldegalerie of Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, “The Girl with the Wine Glass” from the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum in Braunschweig and “The Procuress” from the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister in Dresden.
In addition to this, more than 40 works of Dutch genre painting from the second half of the 17th century, including major works by Pieter de Hooch, Gerard Dou, Frans van Mieris and Gerard Ter Borch, will offer a comprehensive insight into Vermeer’s artistic environment.
The exhibition will be taking place in the Winckelmann Forum of the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister at the Semperbau am Zwinger. As the number of visitors in the exhibition rooms is limited due to Covid-19, timed tickets will be sold. During current opening times, 100 tickets an hour can be purchased via the online shop shop.skd.museum.
