Jan Vermeer's Studio


Well known 17th center painter.

I few things I notice:

- First, of course, the great color and light ... signature Vermeer

- He is seated
- The single window to create directional light on the subject. A large curtain, possibly to control the light from a separate window for Vermeer to work
- The painting on his easel is barely started.
- Is he holding his palette in his left hand because the mall stick is resting on the right edge of the canvas so he must be holding it in his left hand.
