Vermeer

I’ve been looking at Vermeer a lot lately, and am just continually impressed and blown away by the neutral but powerful colors in his paintings. Whether you get on board with the (conspiracy) theories of him using early camera obscura or not, they are fabulous paintings. Nothing I’m saying is new, but his use of light and color is amazing and convincing. This is a painting by him that I haven’t seen before now:
