Vermeer in New York
NPR's Julie McCarthy reports that an exhibit currently at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art features a small Dutch canvas believed to be a previously unrecognized work by Johannes Vermeer. If this Lady at the Virginal is indeed a Vermeer, Sotheby's say it could be worth as much as $60 million. The exhibit of works by Vermeer and his contemporaries moves to London's National Gallery in June.
