Gabriel Metsu at National Gallery of Art

The exhibit of paintings by Gabriel Metsu (A contemporary of Vermeer) at the National Gallery of Art is well worth seeing. The beautiful way he handled paint simply doesn't show up in any of the photos I've seen but they glow in person. At the very least, you can enjoy his compositions on the website below or on the Art Renewal Center website.
