Young Woman Seated at a Virginal

Johannes Vermeerca. 1670-72

This tenderly entrancing picture captures the quiet joy of a young woman in harmony with her music. As she gently fingers the keyboard of her virginal, she leans slightly forward in her chair, quietly and not about to move, while looking out with a sympathetic expression, as though desiring to share the dulcet sounds of her instrument with the viewer.
