The official publication accompanying the largest Vermeer exhibition ever staged, currently running at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam (until 4th June), immerses the reader in the immensely rich pictorial world of the master painter from Delft. All 37 works attributed to him, such as The Milkmaid and Girl with a Pearl Earring, are included and examined in extraordinary close-up detail. An international team of experts has conducted extensive research into the life and artistry of the 17th century artist which has yielded new insights into his social position, household, religious life, technique and the influence of his environment on his painting.
