“The paintings absolutely glow from the walls…However he arrived at his signature strengths, we can see it clearly throughout the exhibition, where this sense of intimacy, mystery and reverence for the ordinary is miraculously sustained.” — Tracy Chevalier, The Art Newspaper
“I went in thinking […] it might be necessary to quibble with an exhibition that includes only Vermeer and none of his supremely gifted contemporaries. But I was wrong, and I was deeply moved.” — Philip Kennicott, The Washington Post
