Audio: Vermeer’s "Woman with a Lute" on Loan from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

In this audio podcast, produced in conjunction with the rare loan of Vermeer's Woman with a Lute, c. 1662-63, from Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Chief Curator Carol Togneri interviews the Met's Curator of European Paintings Walter Liedtke. A noted scholar of Dutch art, Liedtke discusses the enigmatic painting and its iconography, Vermeer's unique creative techniques, and why the artist's few remaining paintings are so popular today, more than 300 years since the artist's death.
