The Ver­meer ex­hi­bi­tion now un­der­way at the re­fur­bished Na­tional Gallery of Ireland brings to­gether as many as ten works by the artist.

This rep­re­sents al­most a third of his sur­viv­ing oeu­vre and is the third high­est num­ber of works by Jo­hannes Ver­meer (16321675) ever as­sem­bled.

The not-to-be-missed show ex­plores the relationships be­tween Ver­meer and Dutch genre painters from 1650 to 1675. It runs un­til Septem­ber 17. Book­ing is es­sen­tial.

Mean­time the fi­nal auc­tion of the sea­son at James

Adam takes place to­mor­row.

The ‘At Home’ sale fea­tures some choice Ori­en­tal works from the es­tate of Anne Bul­litt who died a decade ago aged 83.

Among them are a Ja­panese six-fold screen and a Chi­nese Tang-style glazed horse and rider.
