The Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum (HAUM) is an art museum in the German city of Braunschweig, Lower Saxony and was founded in 1754.

The museum was closed for renovation in 2009 and was reopened on 23rd October 2016.

The Girl with the Wine Glass (Dame en twee heren) is a 1659-1660 painting by Johannes Vermeer. As many of Vermeer’s paintings, it is set in a closed room with only one window that provides the light to the room.

 Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) is one of the most representative painters of the Golden Age painting in Holland. Vermeer painted mostly domestic interior scenes. Almost all his paintings are apparently set in two smallish rooms in his house in Delft; they show the same furniture and decorations in various arrangements and they often portray the same people, mostly women.
