Jan Vermeer - The Lacemaker c. 1669-70; Oil on canvas transferred to panel, Musée du Louvre, Paris
The Lacemaker is a painting by the Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer (1632–1675), completed between 1669–1670 and held in the Louvre, Paris. The work shows a young woman dressed in a yellow shawl, holding up a pair of bobbins in her left hand as she carefully places a pin in the pillow on which she is making her bobbin lace. At 24.5 cm x 21 cm (9.6 in x 8.3 in), the work is the smallest of Vermeer's paintings, but in many ways one of his most abstract and unusual.
