There is an amazing exhibition in London now: Vermeer and Music.
This is just a catalogue book that accompanies the show.

Vermeer and Music: The Art of Love and Leisure

 There are apparently interesting details revealed about the meaning of musical instruments in art of the period and the notion of Vanitas they carry.
Beauty of composition and harmony vs music's inherent temporal essence as allegory of our mortality.

Needless to say, I am dying to see it.

Oh, did I mention that the general entrance to the National Gallery of London is FREE. Ticket to this marvelous special exhibition is £7.
General entrance to the National Gallery of Canada is $12. Brrrrr
