Johannes Vermeer of Delft was one of the most talented painters in the Dutch Golden Age. He created a number of paintings in the 17th century. His Work and life had been forgotten for centuries, but now Wermmer is considered to be one of the greates painters.
I choose Vermeer for many reason:
- the fact that his importance was forgotten for century
- the motifs and the theme that he approached
- the fact that Vermeer used many symbols, attributes, personifications and allegories in his paintings
- his paintings are full of musical instruments and people making music.
- Vermeer painted mostly domestic interiors.
Little is known about his life and only a small number of his paintings have been preserved. The only sources of information are some registers, a few official documents and comments by other artist.
I consider Wermeer a good painting because he created luscious canvases of limited scope: generally women and men in seventeenth-century rooms, but also occasional outdoor scenes, allegory and religious themes. The fascination lies with the intricate combination of light, color, proportion and scale that enhance the moods and reality of the subjects.
Another reason to love Vermeer are his themes: portraits, city views, evryday scenes painted by him.
Whenever we look at a painting we may ask ourselves several questions. One of the firts questions would probably be: “Who made it?” For most paintings this will be very clear. Maybe there is a signature on the painting, or you simply look at the information sign near the painting in the museum. Then you will automatically see the title on the painting. But the question “what is the meaning of this picture?” may not be so easy to answer.
