Johannes Vermeer (1632 - 1675) was a Dutch painter who specialized in exquisite, domestic interior scenes of middle class life. Vermeer was a moderately successful provincial genre painter in his lifetime. He seems never to have been particularly wealthy, leaving his wife and children in debt at his death, perhaps because he produced relatively few paintings. Vermeer worked slowly and with great care, using bright colours and sometimes expensive pigments, with a preference for cornflower blue and yellow. He is particularly renowned for his masterly treatment and use of light in his work. Vermeer painted mostly domestic interior scenes. Almost all his paintings are apparently set in two smallish rooms in his house in Delft, they show the same furniture and decorations in various arrangements and they often portray the same people, mostly women Recognized during his lifetime in Delft and The Hague, his modest celebrity gave way to obscurity after his death. In the 19th century Vermeer was rediscovered and he is now acknowledged as one of the greatest painters of the Dutch Golden Age.
