Style: Baroque

Baroque-- “a period of artistic style that used exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur in sculpture, painting, architecture, literature, dance, and music. The style began around 1600 in Rome, Italy and spread to most of Europe.” Source: wikipedia

Gotcha!, lalibra. ;-)

Actually, y'all --- here's the 411: This Vermeer is one of the earliest paintings of our alien visitors. Once you complete the puzzle one can clearly see that this is a "gray" wearing the mask and wig of a young earth woman and thus masquerading as one of us. = ;O ---Lise---


Thanks Plum, Leanne, Bill, and Claire. Perhaps Vermeer had more of a challenge since he didn't have the standard perspective of light coming through a window on the left. Either that or our guitar player had a recent face lift.

I found the shape of the guitar interesting. I tried to find another picture of it but no such luck. I gather it is something at the end of the Renaisssance era entering into a more modern era. I think the girl is enjoying what she is playing and looks pleased that someone else is enjoying it also...or she is looking for acceptance from maybe a teacher.


You're right, they do, Leanne. In fact when I first looked at the thumbnail I thought she was a doll, because her whole face has a sort of artificial character to it--too smooth, perhaps. I'm assuming it doesn't look that way when you see the real painting in person. Must be the lighting effects don't come across so well in the digital medium.


Close up, her eyes look strangely exaggerated.


Nice to see a Vermeer again. Thanks, Gayle.
