Vermeer Artwork in The Golden Tulip

In The Golden Tulip the main character, Francesca, takes an apprenticeship with the relatively unknown artist of the times, Johannes Vermeer. Sprinked thoughout the book were discriptions and discussions about some of his paintings. This is not the first time I have read a book about Vermeer paintings; A Girl With A Pearl Earring comes to mind. I thought it would be interesting to look up these artworks and share them because I have always had a great appreciation of art.

A Woman in Blue Reading a Letter, 1662-1665

An Artist in His Studio, 1665

A Little Street in Delft, 1657-1658

Allegory of Faith, 1670-1674
