Art History Talk: Jan Vermeer (1632 – 1675)
Working in 17th century Delft, Vermeer focused on depictions of women in light-drenched interiors and took infinite care with every square inch he painted. Images like “Girl with a Pearl Earring” show how he manipulated color and light to create a captivating sense of perfect beauty. Johannes Vermeer was a Dutch Baroque Period painter who specialized in domestic interior scenes of middle-class life. He is considered one of the greatest painters of the Dutch Golden Age along with Rembrandt. In his lifetime, Vermeer was not well known outside of his hometown, the walled city of Delft. He only achieved widespread fame for his intimate genre scenes—paintings that depict ordinary people and everyday life—and quiet cityscapes in the late 19th century, several hundred years after his death. Now, in 2023 tickets, to the Rijksmuseum’s blockbuster Vermeer exhibition were as hard to come by as Taylor Swift tickets.
