There was a time when Rembrandt was untouchable as the greatest of the Dutch Golden Age artists, though Frans Hals, Miendart Hobbema, and even Jan Steen would have put up a stiff fight for the crown.

 


Now, however, its a very different story - Jan Vermeer has eclipsed them all; a rise which seems limitless and unstoppable.

Looking at the surprisingly few paintings which make up the artist's oeuvre, we will reveal the astonishing effects of light he was able to achieve - unique works made using the same raw materials as all the others, but transformed by an exceptional genius of seeing into something magical (and probably unrepeatable, if all the stumbling imitations and fakes are any indication).
