Officer and Laughing Girl - Chart or Kit
One of a collection of fine art paintings beautifully depicted in Cross Stitch from the Cross Stitch Collectibles Collection. A Baroque fine art piece by the artist Vermeer.
Officer and Laughing Girl is a painting created by Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer in about 1657 and now in The Frick Collection in New York.
The theme of a girl entertaining her suitor, already popular in Dutch art, was used by Vermeer as a study of light-filled space. The dark silhouette of the officer helps give the painting an illusion of depth, and contrasts with the play of light on the woman and the room's furnishings. The map of Holland on the far wall, showing the west at the top, was first published in 1621, and it, along with the chairs, appear in other Vermeer paintings.
