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.

FREE shipping on qualifying offers. Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) was one of the greatest painters who ever lived. His genius lies in the subtle gradations of light that illuminate all of his delicately detailed interiors.

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. 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.

Not an easy read if you are as ignorant of the language of art criticism as I am, but well worth sticking with for the quality of Gowing's observations of particular paintings and for the generally plausible discussion that he derives therefrom about Vermeer's psychological make-up and about the ways in which he appropriates and recasts the genre work of the Dutch artists of his time. At the heart of the book is an implicit thesis about style and character that might seem a bit of stretch -- and might be in fact a bit of a stretch -- but is underpinned by the quality of attention to detail that Gowing brings to the work itself. It's a book I feel I need to read again to come more fully to terms with, but that seems worth doing. Two complaints -- I would like more color plates, And I got irritated by Gowing's identifying paintings by the city in which they're exhibited (Dublin, New York, Amsterdam, etc.) instead of by name. Gowing is a painter himself, but he writes carefully and well, even if one feels that he's writing for people who know as much as he does. The regular art-tourist who wants to take a selfie with the "View of Delft" will find this hard going.
Vermeer has always been one of my favorite painters
and this book is the most beautifully written analysis you could find on studies of Vermeer

this is not a book of facts
so if u r trying to find how Vermeer used his paint; what was his specific technique on a painting of his; or what exactly was his story (his family;religion;education etc.) this is not the book for u

but if u r just like me...who love and appreciate the beauty of Vermeer's work and who has no specific purpose on interpreting his intentions...who wholeheartedly love art and could therefore put aside those academic historical datas analysis.....and who is more concerned aesthetically about his work his style...this is the most beautifully written one for u:)
it's like poetry
Provides interesting insights into visual experience/interpretation of Vermeer

I had to buy this book for an art history class I am in and it possible the worst thing I have ever read (for reference, I am an art history major and therefore have encounter many dry and boring art history books, so I'm qualified to make the assertion that this books is quite horrendous). Also, like someone else mentioned, it has barely any images and it refers to the paintings by their location (i.e. "The Dublin painting") not their actual titles, which would have made it a lot easier because most normal people haven't memorized the museum locations of all of Vermeer's works. Another thing mentioned in another review is the author's repetitive wordiness which I have to agree with. If you want a good book on Vermeer with all color images that is actually well written, I recommend Schnieder's complete works of Vermeer. I actually enjoyed reading that one. The author, Gowing, also is just terrible at explaining Vermeer's life and isn't even that accurate and the whole thing seems to be a test of how many times Gowing can use big words to sound smart. Overall, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK
The author rambles on endlessly in what appears to be an attempt to impress the reader with complicated and cryptic prose. It is the worst art book I've ever purchased. Save your money!
While only 35 paintings can be ascribed to Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675), he is considered one of the most important painters in history. Vermeer captured the subtle depth of his subjects while in private contemplations, and recorded the delicacy of light and richness of color in a way that has probably never been surprised.

This luscious volume, with over 80 illustrations-including 54 full-color plates-presents Vermeer's complete illustrious works. From his much-loved Girl With A Pearl Earring to his cityscape The View of Delft (which Marcel Proust lauded as `the most beautiful painting the world'), you'll find them all here and be astounded by Vermeer's innovative technique and mastery of perspective and composition. As a supplement to Vermeer's magnificent works, art historian Dr. Erik Larsen provides an authoritative study of the artist's life and art, and the much-discussed debate surrounding the attribution of his paintings.

Vermeer, one of the first four titles in the Master Artists Library series, is the first series to include magnificent color reproductions of every painting by the featured artist. Written by some of the world's most important art historians, each volume includes a detailed analysis of the artist's paintings, along with an extensive biography. The first four books-Vermeer, Bosch, Masaccio, and Dûrer-are must-have additions to the bookshelves of all art love
Perhaps I would not have been so disappointed had the other reviewer not produced such a glowing description of color plates and lucious images, but I just bought it new from amazon, and the book has 8 (count them, 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8) color plates- all of the rest are black and white. It looks like it will be interesting reading, and there are some lovely details in black and white, but this is an art book- on Vermeer, no less! There should be more color, certainly.
