VermeerVermeer

Published by POLÍGRAFA.
Introduction by Jean-Luc Chalumeau.

This fully illustrated volume collects the complete works of Johannes Vermeer (1632–75). Published in Polígrafa's affordable Old Masters series, it captures the deep blues and transparent yellows of the 35 canvasses that comprise the known work of one of the most popular artists in history.

In his lifetime, Vermeer's fame barely extended beyond his native Delft and a small circle of patrons; even in the decades after his death, his name was largely forgotten. It was not until the mid-19th century that Vermeer was rediscovered and his mastery rightly vindicated.

All of his work, created throughout the second half of the 17th century, is linked to the emergence of the new bourgeois class that provided his main clientele and the subject of many of his paintings. His evocative repertoire of everyday actions—the reading of letters, kitchen tasks, playing music—was animated by his tremendous ability to depict indoor light atmospherically.

Vermeer's MapsVermeer's Maps

Published by DelMonico Books/Frick Collection.
By Rozemarijn Landsman.

Marcel Proust declared View of Delft by Johannes Vermeer (1632–75) “the most beautiful painting in the world.” Indeed, viewers have been captivated by Vermeer's extraordinary art since the 19th-century rediscovery of the Dutch painter. Maps, an intricate fusion of art and science, held an important and multifaceted place in the Netherlands in the 17th century and were of particular interest to Vermeer. Of the approximately 34 paintings attributed to the Delft-based artist, wall maps and other cartographic objects are depicted in nine of them, including the renowned Officer and Laughing Girl and his masterpiece, The Art of Painting. With stunning reproductions and incisive text, this book is the most comprehensive study of the artist's depiction of wall maps to date. Drawing on rare surviving examples of the maps and other primary sources, author Rozemarijn Landsman examines this intriguing aspect of Vermeer’s work, greatly enriching and expanding our understanding of the art and life of the “Sphinx of Delft.”

Vermeer: The Complete WorksVermeer: The Complete Works

Published by Silvana Editoriale.
Edited by Renzo Villa.

This volume--the new standard Vermeer monograph, now in paperback--reproduces in color all 34 of Vermeer's extant paintings, augmenting each with close-ups that lay bare the loving care that the artist lavished upon each painstaking work.

Considered purely in terms of his subject matter--women reading letters, artist’s studios, servants at work--Vermeer conformed entirely to the Renaissance genre repertoire of Dutch Golden Age painting. What he brought to these genres was a realism so powerful that it captured the subtlest effects of light, opened up thrilling psychological tensions and disclosed incredible serenities of indoor reverie. Vermeer is also surely one of the most sexual painters of all time, with the sly expressions of his subjects and their whispered intimacies, and his focal points of almost excruciating tenderness and precision--an earring, a wineglass, a pin. Of Vermeer himself almost nothing is known, and his oeuvre, or what survives of it, is one of the most condensed in the canon: just 34 works, every one of them a masterpiece.

Johannes Vermeer (1632–1675) was born in Delft, Holland, and lived his entire life in the city. He married Catharina Bolenes in 1953, fathering 14 children with her. In his lifetime he saw only moderate success, perhaps in part because of his relatively small output, and when he died in 1675, he left his wife and family in debt.

Vermeer: The Complete WorksVermeer: The Complete Works

Published by Silvana Editoriale.
Edited by Renzo Villa.

The past 150 years have seen Johannes Vermeer steadily ascend from lesser-known Dutch painter to one of the world’s most popular artists, beloved of cognoscenti and the general public alike, and celebrated by everyone from Proust and Dali to Peter Greenaway and Tracy Chevalier (whose bestselling novel Girl with a Pearl Earring offered a fictional portrait of the enigmatic artist). Considered purely in terms of his subject matter--women reading letters, artist’s studios, servants at work--Vermeer conformed entirely to the genre repertoire of Dutch Golden Age painting. What he brought to these genres was a realism so powerful that it captured the subtlest effects of light, opened up thrilling psychological tensions and disclosed incredible serenities of indoor reverie.
