Vermeer | A Young Woman standing at a Virginal, 1670-1672


The richly dressed lady playing a virginal stands in a prosperous Dutch home with paintings on the wall, a marble-tiled floor, and a skirting of locally produced Delft blue and white tiles. The two paintings on the wall behind her cannot be identified with certainty.
The small landscape on the left and the painting decorating the lid of the virginal resemble works by Vermeer🎨’s Delft colleague Pieter Groenewegen.
The second painting, attributed to Cesar van Everdingen, shows the motif of Cupid holding a card. This figure derives from a contemporary emblem. It may either refer to the idea of faithfulness to one lover or, in conjunction with the virginal, to the traditional association of music and love.
