Mary Cassat meets Vermeer

Right: Woman in blue reading a letter, Vermeer, 1662-63 Left: The Letter, Mary Cassatt, 1880-81 Both captured daily and intimate moments. Here Mary Cassatt, in a Japanese inspired technique, meets Vermeer and it seems that at her painting a decision has already been done while in Vermeer's work something is about to happen after the woman finish reading the letter.
