I have been meaning to put this book on the list for months, as it is not often that I get to recommend a bestseller that is also fairly short. This is a quick read and most enjoyable, as Chevalier writes a tale of how a young maiden was immortalized in one of the world’s most famous paintings. Vermeer is a fascinating character in art history, and I once convinced a bunch of fraternity brothers to accompany me to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. to see an exhibit of his work (in exchange, they forced me to watch “Showgirls,” so I would argue they got the better part of that bargain).
