Sigmouse Freud by Alan F. Beck
The Lacemaker is a painting by the Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675), completed between 1669–1670. The work shows a young woman dressed in a yellow shawl bent in concentration as she sews the threads of a dress. The work is the smallest of Vermeer's paintings, but in many ways one of his most abstract and unusual.

Johannes Vermeer (1632 – 1675). Vermeer was a Dutch painter who specialized in domestic interior scenes of ordinary bourgeois life. His entire life was spent in the town of Delft. Vermeer was a moderately successful provincial painter in his lifetime. He is now acknowledged as one of the greatest painters of the Dutch Golden Age, and is particularly renowned for his masterly treatment and use of light in his work.
