Vermeer the Art of Painting
Johannes Vermeer established a brilliant set of techniques, utilizing light in revolutionary ways, and created masterpieces that will stand the test of time. His works, while not well known during his time, have remained in the popular consciousness since a revival in the 1850’s, and he has since earned the status of historic master.
Vermeer painted a lot of domestic interior scenes, as well as portraiture focused on few subjects. His interests lay in compositional and technical aspects of art, including, most famously, his preoccupation with light and lighting. Girl with a Pearl Earring, his almost famous pictures, epitomizes his interests and shows off his technical skill beautifully.
While little remains about the artist’s personal life, we can tell he was utterly devoted to his work and his art and spent a great deal of time in his home in Delft (the Netherlands). Johannes Vermeer artwork only circulated amongst a small group of collectors during his life, but in time, his beautiful works would impact the world.
