Johannes Vermeer

I'm not sure what astonishes me more about Vermeer's paintings; his attention to detial or the COLOURS!





Woman reading a Letter



Young Woman standing at a Virginal



Lady Writing a Letter with Her Maid



Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window



Woman Holding a Balance



Allegory of the Faith



Girl with a Pearl Earring



Young Woman with a Water Jug



The Love Letter



Lady with Her Maidservant Holding a Letter
(Sometimes called Mistress and Maid)



A Lady drinking and A Gentleman



The Art of Painting





These little things (damn you, Imageshack!!!) harldy do the paintings any justice; I strongly reccomend that you take a look at the Jan Vermeer gallery over at ARC to look at the paintings in all their super close-up high-res glory; that way you can really appreciate the minute detail which go into them.

Also, If you're a fan of Girl with a Pearl Earring, this page offers a (very, very, VERY) thorough study of the painting and has some good info on the man himself.
