The Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister in Dresden will be opening a new exhibition in June 2021 entitled Johannes Vermeer. On Reflection.

This exhibition will focus on the recent conservation of the gallery's Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window. The removal of old overpaint shows that Vermeer had intended the scene to include a painting of cupid in the background. This detail, which also features in Vermeer's Lady at the Virginals in London, was overpainted at some point.

The show will also feature loans from the Rijksmuseum, The National Gallery in London and other works by Vermeer's contemporaries.

It seems that the gallery have pushed back the dates of the exhibition to 4th June 2021 - 12th September 2021.
