Johannes Vermeer

by Alix Wood

Part of a Series: Artists Through the Ages.

This detailed volume covers the life and work of Johannes Vermeer, the seventeenth-century Dutch painter perhaps most famous for his Girl with a Pearl Earring. Readers will learn to think like an art historian—through discussions of several of Vermeer’s paintings, the book addresses his methods and various mysteries about his work: who were Vermeer’s models? Did he use a camera obscura? And where are his lost works? Fact boxes add interesting details (“After his death Vermeer was forgotten by the art world for more than 200 years.”). Many of Vermeer’s paintings are shown, along with additional images for context. Back matter includes a glossary, further reading, a link to publisher-selected Web sites, and an index.
