Artcyclopedia : Johannes Vermeer

The art world is so extensive, new artists are born every day. As Joseph Beuys and Pablo Picasso stated, everyone is born an artist, it’s the ones who maintain their abilities who grow into the form of an artist. The amount of people who do is immense, therefore I decided to start a new column on this blog, namely Artcyclopedia. It’s a way of storing my personal favourites in one place. I will do my best to share an artist that I admire once in a while.

Sometimes images speak louder than words, that’s why these posts will consist mostly out of images. This might even encourage you to bring out the inner researcher and search the internet or books for more information about the artist.

Johannes Vermeer is a 17th century dutch master, best known for his painting of the girl with the pearl earring or the milkmaid, but his work consists out of so much more. The pieces that I selected are sceneries that seem so peaceful and so harmoniously constructed. The vibe created by Vermeer is something that fascinates me.
