Servant-girl is a Belgian wall hanging tapestry based on the work of Johannes Vermeer, a Dutch painter, who lived from 1632-1675. This painting dates around 1658. Vermeer was a master at using light to enhance the mood and character of his images. Here, for example, he differentiates light on the rear wall to enhance the figure's three-dimensionality. An ideal piece to display in your home, office, or study.
