The following is a list of paintings by the Dutch Golden Age painter Johannes Vermeer. After two or three early history paintings, he concentrated almost entirely on genre works, typically interiors with one or two figures.
The following is a list of paintings by the Dutch Golden Age painter Johannes Vermeer. His popularity is due less to his subject matter than to the poetic manner in which he portrays his subjects. Vermeer's paintings of the 1660s are generally more popular than his work from the 1670s: in the eyes of some, his later work is colder.
The Delft master Johannes Vermeer is now the most renowned of these painters of everyday life. Michael Whites's Travels in Vermeer: A Memoir made the National Book Awards longlist for Nonfiction. Though he is frequently portrayed as an enigmatic figure who worked largely in isolation, the essays here reveal that Vermeer's subjects, compositions and figure types in fact owe much to works by artists from other Dutch cities. Finalists will be announced on October 14th, and winners will be announced at a ceremony in New York on November 18th.
Johannes Vermeer (UK: /vɜːrˈmɪər, vɛərˈmɪər/, US: /vərˈmɪər, vərˈmɛər/, Dutch: ; October 1632 – December 1675) was a Dutch Baroque Period painter who specialized in domestic interior scenes of middle class life. He was a moderately successful provincial genre painter in his lifetime but evidently was not wealthy, leaving his wife and children in debt at his death, perhaps because he produced relatively few paintings.

Johannes Vermeer, a renowned Dutch artist during the Golden Age era, made a name for himself from his famous works including the View of Delft and Little Street. Perhaps, these were all because of the fact that he was born in Delft, in the Netherlands. Thus, his inspirations mainly came from where he grew up, which had a major impact on his life and career as a painter.
Johannes Vermeer or Jan Vermeer was a Dutch Baroque painter who specialized in domestic interior scenes of ordinary life. Vermeer was a moderately successful provincial painter in his lifetime. His entire life was spent in the town of Delft. He seems to have never been particularly wealthy, perhaps because he produced relatively few paintings, leaving his wife and children in debt at his death. Virtually forgotten for nearly two hundred years, in 1866 the art critic Thore Burger published an essay attributing 66 pictures to him (only 35 paintings are firmly attributed to him today).
Johannes Vermeer was a Dutch artist known especially for his paintings of 17th-century daily life. The 36 or so of his paintings that survive show a remarkable purity of light and form
Johannes Vermeer was a Dutch artist known especially for his paintings of 17th-century daily life. The 36 or so of his paintings that survive show a remarkable purity of light and form. Vermeer was not well known outside of Delft and Amsterdam until the 19th century, when the French critic Étienne-Joseph-Théophile Thoré reassessed the artist’s work. Surprisingly little is known about Vermeer’s decision to become a painter. He registered as a master painter in the Delft Guild of Saint Luke on December 29, 1653, but the identity of his master(s), the nature of his training, and the period of his apprenticeship remain a mystery.
