Summary:
Vermeer's art can be understood as a synthesis of Dutch life and taste, a visual rendering of its plainness and scrupulous order, but, on the other hand--as the historian Huizinga adds--"these are not women of the year sixteen hundred such and such, but figures from an elegiac dream-world of utter peace and tranquillity."
