Jan Vermeer van Delft: Life, facts, curiosities and art!

Jan Vermeer van Delft was born on 31.10.1632 in Delft, where he died on 15.12.1675. Jan Vermeer is one of the most famous Dutch painters of the Baroque. He worked during the golden period of Netherlands, which was marked by prosperity in politics, economics and culture. The extent of the work of Jan Vermeer is very limited with only 37 paintings; additional titles are handed down from old auction records. The first works of Vermeer were historical pictures, however his genre scenes became more popular and these form a major part of this work. “View of Delft” and “Girl with the pearl earring” are his most famous paintings. Since he painted only a very few paintings, some of his paintings were erroneously credited to other painters. This then came to light in the 19th century after research was conducted on Jan Vermeer and his work. He was always conscious about the careful execution of paintings as his goal was perfection. Hence he could not paint more than three or four paintings in a year. His preserved work has almost 40 paintings. His first representation of large figures in groups “Bei der Kupplerin” (1656) consisted mostly of individual figures or interior scenes limited to only a few persons; e.g. “Die Briefleserin« painted around 1662-64 “Die Spitzenklöpplerin” painted around 1665.
