A study of Vermeer by Edward A Snow ( Book )
3 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
His analysis of Vermeer's paintings are focused on details and conducted in a language of patient observation; at the same time they bring the act of looking to the viewing threshold, where imperatives of distance-keeping mingle with fantasies of crossing over and taking apart. Such close attention to the paintings involves the reader in an experience of deepening relationship and ongoing visual discovery. A Study of Vermeer has been designed to facilitate this process: over eighty illustrations, fifty-nine in color (including two full-page foldouts), accompany the text so that the details under discussion will be continuously in view

Vermeer : the complete paintings by Walter A Liedtke ( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since his rediscovery in the later half of the nineteenth century, Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) has been one of the most admired and influential European painters. His extremely private life, his supposed use of a camera obscura, and the fact that his teacher remains unidentified have, until recently, encouraged a view of the 'Sphinx of Delft' as an isolated genius shrouded in an air of mystery. Walter Liedtke's new monograph reveals Vermeer's life to be well documented and places his work in the context of the Delft School and of Delft society as a whole. Vermeer's many admirers will relish Liedtke's exploration of subtleties of meaning and refinements of technique and style. Alongside the most historical approach to Vermeer to date, the annotated colour catalogue of Vermeer's complete paintings reveals a master whose rare sensibility may be described but not explained."--BOOK JACKET

Vermeer's family secrets : genius, discovery, and the unknown apprentice by Benjamin Binstock ( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The seventeenth-century Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, best known today for his Girl with a Pearl Earring, has famously been seen as an enigma since his "discovery" as an unknown genius around 1860. In Vermeer's Family Secrets, Benjamin Binstock offers crucial solutions to the riddle of the "Sphinx of Delft."" "This book provides the first systematic account of Vermeer's family members as models, carefully follows his gradual artistic evolution, responses to predecessors such as Rembrandt and Carel Fabritius, and exchanges with his peers, and re-interprets crucial documents concerning Vermeer. Lavishly illustrated with over 180 black and white images and more than sixty color plates, the book also includes a remarkable two-page color spread that presents the entirety of Vermeer's oeuvre arranged in chronological order and relative scale for visual comparison. Through word and image, Binstock advances a new understanding of Vermeer's art in light of his life and his singular vision."--BOOK JACKET
