"A Lady Drinking and a Gentleman and The Glass of Wine"

Jan Vermeer - Oil On Canvas - 66 x 76 cm - 1660 - (Gemäldegalerie (Berlin, Germany))

The Glass of Wine is one of Vermeer’s early mature works, displaying the mastery he had gained over the canvas. The setting of the scene in the painting is taken from De Hooch's A Dutch Courtyard, belonging to the Delft School of painting which De Hooch had developed. Delft paintings portray images of domestic life, focusing on the setting and placing the figures towards the background instead of in the foreground. Vermeer took from De Hooch and elevated it, the painting shows a seated woman drinking wine from a glass and a man standing with a pitcher, ready to pour her some more. The interior is elegant and suggests a high-class setting, the two figures may be in the midst of a courtship but that is not clear. The cittern and musical notes are placed on the chair, light pours in from the open stained window, the painting in the background is in the shadows. The man wears a hat, as in Dutch traditions, it was discourteous to keep your hat on, unless in the presence of superiors. Vermeer’s brushwork is subdued here, the figures painted with smooth outlines, but the tapestry and tablecloth has remnants of the painter's brush movements.
