Johannes Vermeer

Johannes Vermeer Johannes, Jan or Johan Vermeer (1632 December 1675) was a Dutch painter who specialized in domestic interior scenes of middle-class life.
Vermeer was a moderately successful provincial genre painter in his lifetime.
He evidently was not 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, and frequently used very expensive pigments.
He is particularly renowned for his masterly treatment and use of light in his work.
