Abstract:

Johannes Vermeer (1632-75) is widely acknowledged as one of the most important painters of the seventeenth century. His delicate paintings of genre scenes and landscapes are famous throughout the world for their exquisite use of light. Vermeer's World gives a fascinating insight into the life and work of the Dutch artist. With its reproductions of the 35 paintings ascribed to him, this volume provides a complete catalogue of the artist's oeuvre. Focusing on life in the artist's native city, Delft, the author vividly describes the prosperous Dutch seaport in Vermeer's time- a bustling world of merchants, sea traders, and artists. The result is a compelling portrait that brings us closer to an understanding of this remarkable artist, whose art and life are often still seen as a mystery.
