Vermeer’s "Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window" is getting restored
The Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister in Dresden restores the second painting by Johannes Vermeer "Girl Reading a Letter" (1659). The painting is stable in terms of its conservation condition, considering its age. Specialists say that its surface, however, is characterized by severely darkened layers of varnish and old retouching, and this above all gave rise to the decision to restore the painting.
