The Lacemaker (after Vermeer)

Salvador Dalí Spanish

Not on view

When Johannes Vermeer’s seventeenth-century Dutch
painting “The Lacemaker” was in the conservation lab
of the Musée du Louvre in 1954, Salvador Dalí began
this painting, a meticulous copy of the original.
Correspondence between Robert Lehman and Dalí
suggests that the collector commissioned Dali’s copy of
Vermeer’s masterpiece.
