Johannes Vermeer (1632 - 1675) was a Dutch
Baroque painter who specialised in exquisite,
domestic interior scenes of middle class life.
A genius for composition and the lighting within
paintings are trademarks of Vermeer's work.
Light usually streams from a source to the left
of the subject, nearly always light from a
Vermeerâ€™s genius in the rendering of light
is his true talent. His works are often
characterized simply by the light in the painting.
