For many, Vermeer's paintings are the Highlight of a visit to the Mauritshuis. The museum owns three: a rare early work with a scene of Diana and her nymphs, the masterful View of Delft and the incomparable Girl with the Pearl Earring, which is arguably one of the most treasured paintings in the world.

This book examines the many special facets of these paintings and their place in Vermeer's impressive oeuvre. It also reveals what otherwise often remains unnoticed. Attention is thus focussed on the girl's moist parted lips, the sunlight on Delft's Nieuwe Kerk and the loveliest reflection in the water in all of the history of art.
