Caught an article on CBS Sunday Morning with a feature on Johannes Vermeer. It was truly fascinating.

From wikipedia: Johannes Vermeer was a Dutch painter who specialized in domestic interior scenes of middle-class life. Born: October 31, 1632

Girl with a Pearl Earring is clearly his most famous work. Check out the feature below and a sample of some of his work.

One thought on “Johannes Vermeer

  1. I think that he tried to capture people in every day situations. That concept was new at the time, I believe.
    I love art and I am trying to start painting myself again. Rocky start but it is still fun!
