Since we moved into the virtual communication era, it will appear that paperweights have become useless and even perhaps inappropriate. However, paperweights prevented papers from blowing away and also had a decorative purpose. Nowadays, paperweights are only decorative or corporate objects that are often presented as awards used for a decorative purpose in the house, the office or to symbolize a special goal achievement.
As much a perfect master as a figure of great mystery, 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 when alive, have remained in the popular consciousness since a revival in the 1850’s, and he has since earned the status of historic master.
