Lawrence Gowing's classic study has long been treasured for the painterly sensibilities he brought to this greatly loved body of work. Chronologically catalogs and illustrates the complete paintings of Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer, including a summary of the artist's life and works.
Woman Reading a Letter (Dutch: Brieflezende vrouw) is a painting by the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, produced in around 1663. It has been part of the collection of the City of Amsterdam since the Van der Hoop bequest in 1854, and in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam since it opened in 1885, the first Vermeer it acquired. The central element of the painting is a woman in blue standing in front of a window (not depicted) reading a letter.

Lawrence Weschler is not simply a superb reporter, essayist, and cultural observer; he is also an uncanny collector and connector of wonders. In Vermeer in Bosnia, whether he is reporting on the aftermath of the Yugoslav wars (and noticing, for example, how centuries earlier Vermeer had had to invent the peace and serenity we so prize in his work today from a youth during which all of Europe had been as ravaged as Bosnia) or dissecting the special quality of light in his beloved hometown.

Lawrence Alma-Tadema is all about the incredibly realistic marbles, skin tones and fabrics. Artistically, I'm a fan of precision & virtuosity - best represented by painters Johannes Vermeer & Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Both had incredible technique and understanding of the interaction between lights and objects. In fact Vermeer was so precise that many thought he was using a "camera obscura" - an early pin-hole camera - to get such results.
