Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window by Johannes Vermeer, Oil Painting

"Girl reads a letter at the open window" by Johannes Vermeer shows a young blonde girl standing in front of an open window and reading a letter. Above the top of the window hangs a red curtain, which has opened inwards and reflects in its lower right quadrant the mirror image of the girl. A tasselled ocher curtain to the right in the foreground, partially closed, covers part of the room in which it stands. Fruits in a sloping bowl, on the luxurious carpet that covers the table, and the peach cut in half are highlighted by the light of the window.
