The Vermeer exhibit at the Fitzwilliam was wonderful, I am so pleased that Joan suggested we see it together. Strangely the painting that captivated me most in the whole exhibit was not a Vermeer, although his work was a total treat to view, but a painting by Esaias Boursse entitled 'Dutch interior with woman sewing'....I could have stared at it in awe for hours.
The invigilator kindly allowed me her chair for a few moments so I could make this sketch, I couldn't resist the guy on the left with the flowing hair and jacket thrown over his shoulder, the two seemed to merge.
