"Woman in Blue Reading a Letter" was painted in 1663

by the Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer.  Owned by

Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the artwork will be on

exhibition tour to the Art Museum in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The painting is considered so exquisite, in part, due to

Vermeer's compositional elements and the emotional

content of the scene.
