Talk: Vermeer and Delft
- Wallace Collection |
Jan Vermeer spent his entire life in the city of Delft, capturing the spirit of its daily life in his paintings. He specialised in interior domestic scenes, and his oeuvre presents a fascinating cross-section of 17th-century Dutch society. Other artists of the Dutch Golden Age, such as Pieter de Hooch and Jan Steen, also spent time in Delft, and the significant relationships that developed between their work and Vermeer’s is the theme of this lecture.
