An unusual painting among the works of Vermeer: a quiet street with houses and a few people. Right angles determine the balanced composition; the triangle of the sky adds excitement. The old walls, rough bricks and white plaster are almost tangible. Nevertheless, Vermeer also permitted himself certain freedoms, such as the large big green window shutters.
