Nearly 300 years passed between Johannes Vermeer’s death in 1675 and his recognition as one of the preeminent painters in Western art. Vermeer’s surviving pictures are few, numbering only 35: most of them are domestic scenes of home interiors in which women are engaged in daily activities—such as the four paintings featured in this notecard set. While Vermeer’s paintings capture moments in these individuals’ lives, his lasting fame is largely bound in his sensitive handling of paint, his compositional genius, and his miraculous ability to capture effects of light.
Contains five each of the following notecards:
Girl with Red Hat, 1665/1666
A Lady Writing, 1665
Girl with a Flute, probably 1665/1670
Woman Holding a Balance, c. 1664
