Past Exhibition

The Dutch master Johannes Vermeer was one of the world's greatest painters; however, there are only thirty-six of his paintings in existence. In this exhibition, three paintings from Vermeer's early career were reunited in a significant and rare display.

These early paintings were created between 1653 and 1656: Diana and her Nymphs (about 1653-54) from the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in The Hague; the Scottish National Gallery's Christ in the House of Martha and Mary (about 1654-55); and The Procuress (1656) from the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister Dresden. The exhibition presented a unique opportunity to compare these three important paintings side-by-side and discover more about the development of this world-famous artist.
