Observingarts: Metmuseum and Vermeer on Instagram.

Johannes Vermeer, one of the most admired of all Dutch artists, was born in November in 1632. This painting is probably the earliest in which the Delft painter treats his favorite theme of a young woman, occasionally with a male companion, in a domestic interior. Johannes Vermeer (Dutch, 1632–1675). A Maid Asleep, ca. 1656–57.
