Collection: Johannes Vermeer Paintings

Nationality: Dutch Artist

Johannes Vermeer, a Dutch Golden Age painter, is celebrated for his masterful use of light and exquisite attention to detail in his genre scenes and portraits. Born in 1632 in Delft, Vermeer's modest output of around 35 known paintings belies his profound impact on art history, with works like "Girl with a Pearl Earring" and "The Milkmaid" hailed as masterpieces of the Dutch Baroque period. Despite his relative obscurity during his lifetime, Vermeer's ability to capture moments of quiet intimacy and his enduring legacy as a master of light have solidified his reputation as one of the greatest painters of all time.
