Vermeer's last work

2nd Basement Floor Exhibition Room 54 Vermeer "Woman Sitting at the Virginal" National Gallery collection (England)
Illuminated by the light shining through a window hidden behind the curtains, a woman plays a virginal (a small keyboard instrument similar to a harpsichord) and looks at us with a smile on her face.


A viola da gamba without a player placed in the foreground as if inviting the viewer to join in an ensemble, suggests the presence of a man playing together.

For painters of the time, musical instruments were one of the motifs that symbolized "love" between men and women, and musical instruments and music were used to express love.

Go on a journey to see Vermeer's works scattered around the world!
