Ayelet Salter (Israel)- Vermeer in The West Bank, 2006, 3:28
My work explores the place of women in history and how the status of women in Israel compares to the reality depicted in the work of the Dutch painter Jan Vermeer. I fell in love with Vermeer‘s work and wanted to offer him alternatives from my own perspective for paintings he could have made.
