Vermeer - the Rijksmuseum's Major Exhibition

Gregor J M Weber , Pieter Roelofs , Taco Dibbits

$110.00

Published to accompany the once-in-a-lifetime exhibition at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, this is the first major study of Vermeer’s life and work in many years.

A New York Times Best Art Book of 2023

Johannes Vermeer's intensely quiet and enigmatic paintings invite the viewer into a private world, often prompting more questions than answers. Who is being portrayed? Are his subjects real or imagined? And how did he create such an unrivaled sense of intimacy?

Bringing together diverse strands of the Dutch master's professional and private worlds, this is the first major authoritative study of Vermeer's life and work for many years shedding light on all thirty-seven of his paintings.

Vermeer was designed by Irma Boom, the "Queen of Books," and printed on an uncoated "Munken Print White" paper, specially commissioned to ensure the veracity of colors. Irma Boom says: "the matte paper brings you closer to Vermeer; there is no gloss or glare in between, just like with the real works." With a wide selection of contextual illustrations, commentaries, and up-to-date research by distinguished international Vermeer scholars, this is the definitive volume on the most admired of all seventeenth-century Dutch masters.
