Vermeer — Born in 1632, only three dozen canvases survive from Johannes (Jan) Vermeer’s working life. A lifelong resident of the Dutch city of Delft, Vermeer chose as the first point of interest in his work the places and people of that city. He chose to depict scenes of ordinary, everyday life, which was unusual for the times. Vermeer is known for the calm and precise nature of his images, almost mathematical in their organization, and for his remarkable ability to depict the effects of light. Almost 200 years passed after his death before his status as a Dutch Master began to be fully recognized.
