Vermeer Visits

A woman in a yellow coat trimmed with ermine sits at a table writing a letter. She is looking at her maid, dressed in brown, who is speaking to her and handing her a note.

The National Gallery of Ireland unites The Frick Collection’s Mistress and Maid by Johannes Vermeer with the National Gallery of Ireland’s Woman Writing a Letter, with her Maid for Vermeer Visits. This is an unprecedented opportunity to unite the works, as the Frick’s Vermeer — one of the highlights of its holdings — has rarely travelled outside of New York. While the Frick’s period home is under renovation, Vermeer’s Mistress and Maid will make an exceptional trip to Dublin.

Curator: Dr Lizzie Marx, Curator of Dutch and Flemish Art

Proudly supported by Friends of the National Gallery of Ireland.
