Johannes Vermeer
Dutch, 1632–1675
Follow

Johannes Vermeer is best known for his meticulously rendered images of women in light-filled domestic interiors. A slow and methodical painter, Vermeer produced relatively few paintings (34 have been attributed to him) but was a modest celebrity in his hometown of Delft during his lifetime. After he died, he fell into obscurity until the 19th century when he was rediscovered by German art historian Gustav Friedrich Waagen and French journalist and art critic Théophile Thoré-Bürger. Vermeer is now considered one of the greatest painters of the Dutch Golden Age.
