I'd opt for the Vermeer were it available. Not that I could afford it.
The Vermeer piece is very small at 17.5" x 15" ... and I infer this piece is relatively large (yes?). Not trying to be bitchy ... but I'd find it hard to look at that piece. It offers -- for my taste -- a tad to much detail to the point it makes me uncomfortable. It's good when art can envoke discomfort in me ... but I can't say I'd want to live with it.
That said, congratulations.
