Through a historical analysis of Vermeer's method of production and a close reading of his art, Daniel Arasse explores the originality of this artist in the context of seventeenth-century Dutch painting.

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

7 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 434 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."--BOOK JACKET

Vermeer's family secrets : genius, discovery, and the unknown apprentice by Benjamin Binstock( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 342 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."--BOOK JACKET

The essential Johannes Vermeer by Christopher Sweet( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 176 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?
