Johannes Vermeer Biographyb. October 1632, d. December 1675
Dutch genre painter
Full name is Johannes Vermeer van Delft, is known as Vermeer, Johannes Vermeer, Vermeer Johannes, Jan Vermeer, Vermeer Jan, Johannes Jan Vermeer.
Lived and worked in Delft, created some of the most exquisite paintings in Western art such as Kitchen Maid, Girl with a Pearl Earring.
Vermeer paintings are rare. Of the 35 or 36 paintings generally attributed to him, most portray figures in interiors. All Vermeer the art of painting is admired for the sensitivity with which he rendered effects of light and color and for the poetic quality of his images. Little is known for certain about Vermeer biography and career. The painter was born in 1632, the son of a silk worker with a taste for buying and selling art. Vermeer artist himself was also active in the art trade. He lived and worked in Delft all his life. Not much is known about his apprenticeship as an artist either.
His teacher may have
been Leonaert Bramer, a Delft artist who was
a witness at his marriage in 1653, or
the painter Carel Fabritius of Delft. In
1653 he enrolled at the local artists guild.
The earliest signed and dated Vermeer painting, The
Procuress (1656; Gemaldegalerie Alte
Meister, Dresden), is thematically related
to a Dirck van Baburen painting that he
owned and that appears in the background of
two of Vermeer paintings. Another possible
influence was that of Hendrick Terbrugghen,
whose style anticipated the light color
tonalities of later Vermeer art of painting. - free biography are

During the late 1650s, artist Vermeer along with
Pieter de Hooch, began to place a
new emphasis on depicting figures within
carefully composed interior spaces. Other
Dutch painters, including Gerard Ter Borch
and Gabriel Metsu, painted similar scenes,
but they were less concerned with the
articulation of the space than with the
description of the figures and their
actions. In early Johannes Vermeer paintings such as The
Milkmaid (c.1658; Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam),
the artist struck a delicate balance between
the compositional and figural elements, and
he achieved highly sensuous surface effects
by applying paint thickly and modeling his
forms with firm strokes. Later Johannes Vermeer turned to
thinner combinations of glazes to obtain the
subtler and more transparent surfaces
displayed in art of painting Vermeer such as Woman with a
Water Jug (c.1664/5; Metropolitan Museum of
Art, New York City).
A keen sensitivity to the effects of light and color and an interest in defining precise spatial relationships probably encouraged
Vermeer Johannes to experiment with the camera obscura, an optical device that could project the image of sunlit objects placed before it with extraordinary realism.
Biography: Although the painter may have sought to depict the camera's effects in his View of Delft (c.1660; Mauritshuis, The Hague), it is unlikely that Vermeer Jan would have traced such an image, as some commentators have charged. Moralizing references occur in several of paintings by Johannes Vermeer, although they tend to be obscured by the paintings' vibrant realism and their general lack of narrative elements. In his Love Letter (c.1670; Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam), a late painting in which the spatial environment becomes more complex and the figures appear more doll-like than in earlier Johannes Vermeer painting, the artist includes on the back wall a work of a boat at sea. Because this art was based on a contemporary emblem warning of the perils of love, it was clearly intended to add significance to the figures in the room.
After his death Vermeer painter was overlooked by
all but the most discriminating collectors
and art historians for more than 200 years.
Few paintings Vermeer were attributed to other
artists. Only after 1866, when the French
critic W. Thore-Burger "rediscovered" him,
did paintings by Vermeer become widely known and
his works heralded as genuine Vermeers. -

Barely 35 paintings of Vermeer are known to have been painted by him. Early Vermeer art - mainly history pieces - reveal the influence of the Utrecht Caravaggists. In later Johannes Vermeer paintings, however, Jan van Delft produced meticulously constructed interiors with just one or two figures - usually women. These are intimate genre paintings in which the principal figure is invariably engaged in some everyday activity: one is reading a letter, another is fastening a collar about her neck, yet another is pouring out milk. Often the light enters Vermeer paintings from a window. Jan Vermeer was a master at depicting the way light illuminates objects and in the rendering of materials. The Rijksmuseum has three domestic portraits by the painter and one street scene: the world-famous Little Street.
