Day 130 - Woman Playing a Lute

This detail is from a lovely painting we saw at the Norton Simon Museum. It is by Johannes Vermeer, painted around 1662 or 1663. It is in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum, on loan to the Norton Simon. How wonderful to be able to see it up close! I probably spent 15 or 20 minutes just looking at this painting.
