The fabric pattern and the lute make me think a rather subtle reference to "The Ambassadors", which I saw just the other day... An Endlessly fascinating piece with its layers of symbolism and that unique "memento mori".... Perhaps that is why this is the end?

This is not the end of the visitor, fortunately. For me, a vanity, in painting, is not only a memento mori, but also a reminder that life is precious in its fragility, and that it should not be wasted on vain possessions. I ended my story with this painting, which is like the Vermeer at the start, a sort of allegory of painting, in particular because it questions its point of view.

Encore un musée qui présente des oeuvres exceptionnelles qui m'ont laissé pantois. Rien à voir avec les reproductions. Encore une fois, Joe est tombé juste. J'aurais bien vu une petite anamorphose cahée dans l'image...

Oooh! Found it. This is another one that I have seen before: the one with the tricky skull in the foreground! Thank you so much for this interesting series! =)
