Format: Paperback
The beginning of the book gives a concise overview of Vermeers work which is a good reminder for readers familiar with the artist but also provides all the vital points to people first learning about Vermeer.
The rest of the book covers all his works with full page pictures of the painting in exceptionally good colour reproduction. It is a very informative book highlighting many features within his paintings that could be easily remain unnoticed and explains there relevance.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I must confess that I knew Vermeer when I watched the movie "Girl with a Pearl Earring", a not very known movie from 2003, but with a very good story based on the life of this painter. When I bought this book I thought was a normal size book, but it is double the size of that, so you can appreciate all the plates with better resolution. What a great painter, Vermeer based his pictures on domestic situations, tipically in the same room, with an exquisite use of colors and a masterful use of light. Everything in his painting looks so real, the textures of the tapestry, the clothes of the women, the bread in the precious "The Milkmaid" -which remember me those breads my mother does- the glasses and those provocative lips of the "Girl with a Pearl Earring", a painting that celebrate woman, the dutch monalisa. This is Art, pure Art in his highest, from this skillful dutch master.
