Johannes (also “Jan”) Vermeer was born in Delft in 1632 and died there some 43 years later. The name “Vermeer” is a contraction of the word “van der meer”, which translates as “from the sea/lake”. I just love Vermeer’s paintings and his beautiful use of light. A good example of such a work is his “Girl with a Pearl Earring”. If you haven’t seen it, I thoroughly recommend the 2003 film The Girl with the Pearl Earring starring Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth as Vermeer. The movie is based on Tracy Chevalier’s novel of the same name, so it’s all just a great story as opposed to a documentary. The way the film is shot really reflects the qualities of Vermeer’s artwork.
