Explore Johannes Vermeer's remarkable legacy with this exquisite volume of detailed recreations and essays. Discover the captivating art of one of the world's most celebrated painters. Analyze his works and their impact on the Dutch Golden Age and contemporary art. Delve into Vermeer's signature technique of expressing a vivid narrative with a single gesture or glance.

Despite numbering only 35 works, Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) has achieved a lasting renown far beyond his native Delft and a small circle of patrons. His legacy and fame have grown over the centuries with a New York Times best-seller, a movie starring Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth, unprecedented museum attendance, and a devoted fan base globally. His works, initially misattributed to other artists, were rediscovered in the mid-19th century and hailed for Vermeer’s masterful interplay of light, texture, and narrative detail. This 40th anniversary edition of Vermeer’s complete catalog captures these details and celebrates his timeless ability to craft stories within a single look, gesture, or expression.

About the Artist

Johannes Vermeer

Johannes Vermeer (1632–1675) stands as one of the most enigmatic figures in art history. Little is known about his life, adding an air of mystery to his extraordinary body of work. Born and based in Delft, the Netherlands, Vermeer was a master of light, composition, and meticulous detail. Vermeer's paintings offer glimpses into everyday life, often featuring domestic scenes, intimate interiors, and female subjects engaged in daily activities. His exceptional ability to capture the effects of light and create a sense of stillness and serenity in his compositions has earned him admiration and acclaim.
