Discussing these and other aspects of Vermeer's art, Arasse locates the painter's genius in the reflexive, meditative nature of his works, each of which seems to be a painting about painting.

Vermeer's women : secrets and silence by Marjorie E Wieseman( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 491 libraries worldwide
"Focusing on the extraordinary Lacemaker from the Musée du Louvre, this beautiful book investigates the subtle and enigmatic paintings by Johannes Vermeer that celebrate the intimacy of the Dutch household. Moments frozen in paint that reveal young women sewing, reading or playing musical instruments, captured in Vermeer's uniquely luminous style, recreate a silent and often mysterious domestic realm, closed to the outside world, and inhabited almost exclusively by women and children. Three internationally recognized experts in the field explain why women engaged in mundane domestic tasks, or in pleasurable pastimes such as music making, writing letters, or adjusting their toilette, comprise some of the most popular Dutch paintings of the seventeenth century. Among the most intriguing of these compositions are those that consciously avoid any engagement with the viewer. Rather than acknowledging our presence, figures avert their gazes or turn their backs upon us; they stare moodily into space or focus intently on the activities at hand. In viewing these paintings, we have the impression that we have stumbled upon a private world kept hidden from casual regard. The ravishingly beautiful paintings of Vermeer are perhaps the most poetic evocations of this secretive world, but other Dutch painters sought to imbue simple domestic scenes with an air of silent mystery, and the book also features works by some of the most important masters of 17th-century Dutch genre painting, among them Gerard ter Borch, Gerrit Dou, Pieter de Hooch, Nicolaes Maes, and Jan Steen"--Publisher's description

Vermeer : the complete paintings by Walter A Liedtke( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 413 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 world : an artist and his town by Irene Netta( Book )

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

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 320 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

Johannes Vermeer by Celeste Brusati( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 189 libraries worldwide
The essential Johannes Vermeer by Christopher Sweet( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 177 libraries worldwide
Johannes Vermeer is the poetic soul of Dutch art and one of the great vanishing acts in art history. With his death in 1675 and the dispersal of his paintings, Vermeer's artistic and personal identities were virtually eclipsed. But he was rediscovered in the late 19th century and quickly became known as one of the great European masters. Did you know that: Vermeer paid his rent by giving paintings to his landlord? fewer than 40 paintings are attributed to Vermeer? the formality of Vermeer's images masks a deeper, symbolic meaning? some critics still argue that Vermeer's possible use of camera obscura -- the "first camera"--Makes him more of a copyist than a truly original artist?
