  • Details
    The Letter Reader (or Girl Reading Letters) in the Open Window is an oil painting painted in 1657-1659 by Jan Vermeer. Therefore, it can be attributed to the early phase of Vermeer's artistic creativity. The image belongs to the collection of the Painting Gallery of the old masters of Dresden.

    During World War II, the picture was stored in a warehouse at Königstein Fortress to be safe. In 1945 it was brought to the USSR as war booty, where it spent ten years in a warehouse and was returned to the GDR government along with the collection in 1955. Since 2017, the image has undergone a major restoration that was completed in May 2020. At the end of 2021, it was the center of a special Vermeer exhibition at the reopened Semper Gallery.
