Vermeer, faith in painting by Daniel Arasse( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arasse shows that although Vermeer usually uses secular subject matter commonplace among his contemporaries, his treatment of iconography, light, and line, for example, varies greatly from theirs. Iconographical elements tend to hold meaning in suspense rather than to explicate; dazzling light emanates from interior objects; sfumato renders the presence of objects without depicting them
Vermeer, 1632-1675 : veiled emotions by Norbert Schneider( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vermeer's record of the tasks and duties of women The 35 paintings that have come down to us from the hand of Jan Vermeer (1632-1675) place him beside Rembrandt and Frans Hals as one of the great masters of the golden age of Dutch art. Most of his pictures (all of which are reproduced in this book) show women about their daily business. Vermeer records the tasks and duties of women, the imperatives of virtue under which their lives were lived, and the dreams that provided the substance of their contrasting counter-world. About the Series: Each book in TASCHEN's Basic Art series features: a detailed chronological summary of the life and oeuvre of the artist, covering his or her cultural and historical importance a concise biography approximately 100 illustrations with explanatory captions
A study of Vermeer by Edward A Snow( Book )

8 editions published between 1977 and 1994 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We respond so intensely to Vermeer, suggests Edward Snow in this landmark study of the artist, because his paintings reach so deeply into our lives. Our desire for images, the distances that separate us, the validations we seek from the still world, the traces of ghostliness in our own human presence - these are Vermeer's themes
Vermeer's women : secrets and silence by Marjorie E Wieseman( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on the extraordinary Lacemaker from the Musée du Louvre, this beautiful book investigates the subtle and enigmatic paintings by Johannes Vermeer that celebrate the intimacy of the Dutch household. Moments frozen in paint that reveal young women sewing, reading or playing musical instruments, captured in Vermeer's uniquely luminous style, recreate a silent and often mysterious domestic realm, closed to the outside world, and inhabited almost exclusively by women and children. Three internationally recognized experts in the field explain why women engaged in mundane domestic tasks, or in pleasurable pastimes such as music making, writing letters, or adjusting their toilette, comprise some of the most popular Dutch paintings of the seventeenth century. Among the most intriguing of these compositions are those that consciously avoid any engagement with the viewer. Rather than acknowledging our presence, figures avert their gazes or turn their backs upon us; they stare moodily into space or focus intently on the activities at hand. In viewing these paintings, we have the impression that we have stumbled upon a private world kept hidden from casual regard. The ravishingly beautiful paintings of Vermeer are perhaps the most poetic evocations of this secretive world, but other Dutch painters sought to imbue simple domestic scenes with an air of silent mystery, and the book also features works by some of the most important masters of 17th-century Dutch genre painting, among them Gerard ter Borch, Gerrit Dou, Pieter de Hooch, Nicolaes Maes, and Jan Steen"--Publisher's description

Vermeer : reception and interpretation by Christiane Hertel( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vermeer : the complete paintings by Walter A Liedtke( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since his rediscovery in the later half of the nineteenth century, Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) has been one of the most admired and influential European painters. His extremely private life, his supposed use of a camera obscura, and the fact that his teacher remains unidentified have, until recently, encouraged a view of the 'Sphinx of Delft' as an isolated genius shrouded in an air of mystery. Walter Liedtke's new monograph reveals Vermeer's life to be well documented and places his work in the context of the Delft School and of Delft society as a whole. Vermeer's many admirers will relish Liedtke's exploration of subtleties of meaning and refinements of technique and style. Alongside the most historical approach to Vermeer to date, the annotated colour catalogue of Vermeer's complete paintings reveals a master whose rare sensibility may be described but not explained."--Jacket
Vermeer's family secrets : genius, discovery, and the unknown apprentice by Benjamin Binstock( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The seventeenth-century Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, best known today for his Girl with a Pearl Earring, has famously been seen as an enigma since his "discovery" as an unknown genius around 1860. In Vermeer's Family Secrets, Benjamin Binstock offers crucial solutions to the riddle of the "Sphinx of Delft."" "This book provides the first systematic account of Vermeer's family members as models, carefully follows his gradual artistic evolution, responses to predecessors such as Rembrandt and Carel Fabritius, and exchanges with his peers, and re-interprets crucial documents concerning Vermeer. Lavishly illustrated with over 180 black and white images and more than sixty color plates, the book also includes a remarkable two-page color spread that presents the entirety of Vermeer's oeuvre arranged in chronological order and relative scale for visual comparison. Through word and image, Binstock advances a new understanding of Vermeer's art in light of his life and his singular vision."--Jacket
Vermeer's world : an artist and his town by Irene Netta( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johannes Vermeer (1632-75) is widely acknowledged as one of the most important painters of the seventeenth century.

With its reproductions of the 35 paintings ascribed to him, this volume provides a complete catalogue of the artist's oeuvre. Focusing on life in the artist's native city, Delft, the author vividly describes the prosperous Dutch seaport in Vermeer's time- a bustling world of merchants, sea traders, and artists. The result is a compelling portrait that brings us closer to an understanding of this remarkable artist, whose art and life are often still seen as a mystery

Vermeer by Christopher Wright( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vermeer of Delft, one of the sublime Dutch artists of the seventeenth century, was locally respected but his reputation did not spread beyond his native Delft. In 1866, some two hundred years after Vermeer's death, at the age of only 42, the French writer Theophile Thore published two series of articles which belatedly brought the artist to the world's attention, and rescued him from obscurity. In this illuminating study, Christopher Wright proposes a deeper interpretation of his early life and work finding that, before producing his now renowned paintings, Vermeer copied, and even altered, the Dutch and Italian Masters to suit local tastes

The essential Johannes Vermeer by Christopher Sweet( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johannes Vermeer is the poetic soul of Dutch art and one of the great vanishing acts in art history. With his death in 1675 and the dispersal of his paintings, Vermeer's artistic and personal identities were virtually eclipsed. But he was rediscovered in the late 19th century and quickly became known as one of the great European masters. Did you know that: Vermeer paid his rent by giving paintings to his landlord? fewer than 40 paintings are attributed to Vermeer? the formality of Vermeer's images masks a deeper, symbolic meaning? some critics still argue that Vermeer's possible use of camera obscura -- the "first camera"--Makes him more of a copyist than a truly original artist?
