Sunday Citar

Johannes Vermeer


The painter's vision is not a lens, it trembles to caress the light.
Robert Lowell

Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks.
Plutarch

If the world could remain within a frame like a painting on the wall, I think we'd see the beauty then and stand staring in awe.
Conor Oberst

Wow!

Randi said...

Stunning painting. I too, love the third quote. It reminds me to slow down and "smell the roses" so to speak. We revere so many paintings, and it's because they capture for us a moment frozen in time.

Muthering Heights said...

I've always loved this picture. I think it's in one of the Smithsonians in D.C.? I've seen it in person recently, I'm pretty sure.

But I could be crazy!
