From now until 17th September in the Beit Wing in the National Gallery, The Vermeer exhibition will explore the fascinating network of relationships between Vermeer and Dutch genre painters of the period 1650 to 1675. Conceived by the National Gallery of Ireland, this exhibition will bring together some 60 paintings from around the world.  The National Gallery of Ireland’s Vermeer, Lady Writing a Letter with Her Maid, which is regarded as one of the artist’s finest works, will be shown alongside other works including Woman with a BalanceWoman with a Pearl Necklace, and The Astronomer. Paintings of daily life by contemporaries of Vermeer, including Gerrit Dou and Frans van Mieris, will also feature.

The exhibition is organised by the National Gallery of Ireland in collaboration with the Musee du Louvre, Paris, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington and you can book tickets HERE.
