About the Art

Jan Vermeer (1632 – 1675) was a Dutch artist known for exceptionally realistic works and a masterly command of light. Originally creating historical and genre paintings, Vermeer’s true virtuosity lay in his ability to paint lyrical, domestic scenes imbued with such a sense of dignity and purpose that they transcended the mundane. The quality and quantity of detail in Vermeer’s art is nearly microscopic, accentuated by glittering, pearly highlights called pointillés which made his work extraordinarily lifelike. Although he only produced 35 paintings in his lifetime, Vermeer is considered to be one of the greatest artists of the Dutch Golden Age.

      Uded for educational purposes. Compared to other prints purchased, this one lacks vivid details and seems like a poor copy. Other prints were great.

        My teenage son fell in love with this painting at the Louvre, and we searched for it in a quality print. We are completely happy with this purchase.

          A very nice piece of work. I removed the glass protector and found the colours even more vibrant. I'm impressed with the giclee print. It gives the artwork an authentic look. The quality of the frame is good and sturdy. It's looks great in my office.
