Soon after visiting The Frick Collection and falling in love with Vermeer’s Officer and Laughing Girl, I couldn’t help but notice the similarly careful attention paid to light effects in this church interior, particularly the way in which light emerges from the right side of foreground elements. It betrayed the eye of a perceptive student of light, and I had to have it, thinking, as I still do, that this quality is rare.
