This is the last of the music series, of one of my favourite artists, Johannes Vermeer. The first one 'A view of Delft' is one of the rare outdoor scenes that he painted. Vermeer's art mainly consisted of indoor themes. Clearly it demonstrates the ability he possessed to paint architectural streetscapes, and still be able to focus on the music theme he had at the time. The musician with the hat, in deep thought, and his musical instrument resting on the table, and leaning on the wall. I also particularly love the drape that is hanging from the ceiling on the second painting, with the woman playing the clavich. I think it incorporates wonderful fine detail, you can feel the drape almost moving in the air. I hope you appreciate the fine artwork of Vermeer, the same way I do.
