Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window is an oil painting by Dutch Baroque painter Johannes Vermeer. Completed in approximately 1657-1659, the well-preserved painting is on display at the Gemäldegalerie in Dresden. For many gears, the attribution of the painting–which features a young Dutch woman reading a letter before an open window was lost, with first Rembrandt and then Pieter de Hooch being credited for the work before it was properly identified in 1880. After World War II, the painting was briefly in the possession of the Soviet Union.
Condition of plate is mint, not a chip or scratch anywhere on the surface. It has been very well taken care of for approximately 130 years.
