Afternoon Art Talk
Vermeer and the Delft School of Painting
With Ines Powell,
Educator, Metropolitan Museum of Art
Friday, December 13 at 1:30 PM
Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) is the best-known painter of the Delft painting school of the 17th century. His specialty was the depiction of middle class household scenes, which he created slowly and deliberately. He is known for his exquisite treatment of light in his work. The Delft school was best known of specializing in genre paintings, which included depictions of domestic scenes, church interiors, courtyards, and the street of the city. Pieter de Hooch (1629-1684), Emanuel de Witte (1617-1692) and Henrick Cornelisz van Vliet (1611-1675) are a few among the many artists that worked in the city of Delft.
