Lady Seated at a Virginal

File:Vermeer Lady Seated at a Virginal.jpg

In this deceptively simple painting of aninterior a young girl sits at a virginal with a viola da gamba to her left and a painting on the wall behind her. A feeling of space dominates the canvas, creating a sense of timelessness and other worldliness. We only gradually become aware of the picture’s rich and meticulous colouring .

Monroe is probably Warhol’s most famous subject. He used a publicity still as the basis for this and other pictures of her, presenting us with a frozen image that reinforces the universal power of the most tragic of all Hollywood’s personae. The portrayal of Monroe as a product of mass culture, packaged for the public as if a consumer item connects this work to the American Pop Art movement.
