My first visit to the Frick Museum a few years ago started a quest that I hope to finish (if someone has kept The Concert for the last 24 years). I’m lucky as there are 8 Vermeers in NYC so I live amongst them¬† – but I’ve also been catching them on my travels. Here’s the list to date, in the order of viewing, and a bit about each of the luminous stolen moments captured on canvas.
