In this painting Officer and Laughing Girl by Vermeer, it is as if he mounted the lens of a Camera Obscura box too close to the officer and presents him looming very large. By contrast the woman further away in the room seems relatively too small. The painting can be seen in the The Frick Collection in New York City.

CAPOLAVORO!!!

Saw this at The Frick last year. Until you stand in front of this painting you have no idea how beautiful & mesmerizing it is. You won’t be able to take your eyes off it.

Been doing virtual powerpoints with him. Very well done!

Absolutely gorgeous !

Learn more in a private or group Zoom meeting about Vermeer!

Private Art Tours
Mango Trees painted by Paul Gaugain in Martinique, the overseas French territory. To be able to pluck mangoes from a tree is a snapshot of paradise. Gauguin changed reality, however. A dripping mango would never be allowed to drip onto a white dress!
Gauguin went to a government official and talked him into providing passage on a ship, paid for by the French state, in order to further the cause of French trade and glory.
It is now in the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We can visit this museum’s treasures digitally, through a private Zoom appointment.
