Johannes Vermeer (1632 –1675) was a Dutch painter born in Delft, Netherlands who specialised in domestic interior scenes of middle-class life. His art prints have been a source of inspiration and fascination for centuries, but the identity of his masters, the nature of his training, and the period of his apprenticeship remain a mystery. Frequently using very expensive pigments, he is particularly renowned for his masterly treatment and use of light in his work. Almost all his paintings are apparently set in two smallish rooms in his house in Delft; they show the same furniture and decorations in various arrangements and they often portray the same people, mostly women. His best known art prints include; ‘A girl reading a letter’ and ‘View of Deft’. Enjoy of these and others here at artrepublic.
