Woman Sewing by William McGregor Paxton

 Oil on canvas, 30 x 25 inches, 1913

I've been enjoying looking at the work by William McGregor Paxton, who was inspired by Vermeer. You can zoom in on the above picture at The Detroit Institute of Arts. I especially like how he featured one of his paintings within this painting. On the wall hangs his painting 'Girl Combing Her Hair' shown below:
