Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675), one of the great masters of the Dutch Golden Age, is among the world's best-loved artists. The poetry of Vermeer's painting, with its brilliant colors, exquisite textures and pearly light effects, is as vivid to us today as it must have been to people of the artist's own time.
This beautiful book illustrates every known work by Vermeer in full color. Arthur K. Wheelock, Jr., Curator of Northern Baroque Painting at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and a noted authority on the Dutch seventeenth century, has written an illuminating essay on the artist and commentaries on the paintings.
