Did you know? A work by Johannes Vermeer, one of the greatest painters of the Dutch Golden Age, has not been on view in Detroit since 1947. Don’t miss the opportunity to see one of his 35 known works, “Woman Holding a Balance,” August 8 through September 2 at the DIA. This piece is an intimate depiction of domesticity that reveals Vermeer’s masterful use of light, proportion, and symbolism. For more information, visit our website: http://bit.ly/MZifhU.
