"The Love Letter" by Vermeer can be found in the Rijksmuseum.
The maid may just have handed a letter to her mistress. If it is a love letter, the lover may be at sea - as one of the paintings may indicate. The world of music is represented by the interruption of the mistress’ lute playing, and the folded music score on the chair in the right hand foreground. Worlds of music, harmony, and the meeting of the sexes become interwoven in series of Vermeer stills.

Vincent Van Gogh had a big heart and felt for the downtrodden, the plight of the poor in a truly socialist way. The drawing "Sorrow" shows a 32-year-old pregnant woman 'Clasina Maria Hoornik', known as Sien. She was probably a prostitute.
In a letter from July 1882 Van Gogh states; I want to make drawings that touch some people. Sorrow is a small beginning [...] there is at least something directly from my own heart.
Two reprints can be seen in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and MoMA The Museum of Modern Art in New York City, USA.
