[With Montias] the past is hard put to hide what were in all truth its secrets.... One will read Vermeer and His Milieu several times, as [Montias] has read the archives; he is an indispensable companion for anyone who likes the seventeenth century.---Lawrence Gowing, The [London] Times Literary Supplement
What if 454 documents related to Vermeer and his family were lying, long undisturbed, in the archives of no fewer than 17 Dutch and Belgian cities? And what if someone were to transcribe and translate every one of them? Wouldn't we want to know all about it? Of course we would, and now that we have John Michael Montias' new book, Vermeer and His Milieu, we can see how right we are.... As detective work, and as a portrait of an era, [this book] ranks high.--New York Times Book Review
This book is not only a fascinating biography of one of the greatest painters of the seventeenth century but also a social history of the colorful extended family to which he belonged.See all Product description
