AMSTERDAMSolving a 350-year old mystery
10 September – 02 January 2022



A fascinating exhibition reflecting on the work of Johannes Vermeer is currently on view at the Old Masters Picture Gallery, Amsterdam. A standout painting in the show is newly-restored, Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window that dates from 1657-1659. Since 2017, this work has undergone significant restoration to reveal a painting of Cupid in the composition. After much scientific investigation it was concluded that the painting of Cupid was overpainted not by Vermeer but by another hand some years after Vermeer had painted it. The gallery offers an in-depth look into the restoration, conservation and  research surrounding the painting.
