Johannes Vermeer is now recognized as one of the great Dutch painters, but while he was alive he could barely make ends meet, and his artistic achievement was almost entirely ignored for 200 years after his death.
Little is known about his personal life, other than he died poor and young and left behind a wife and eleven children.
Vermeer is admired for his realistic style, his subtle use of color and light and his unusual and inventive brush technique, but fewer than forty of his paintings exist. His most famous works include domestic scenes such as Girl With a
Pearl Earring (1665) and The Music Lesson (1662-65), and tranquil landscapes such as The Little Street (1657-58) and View of Delft (1659-60).

July 2013: back in stock. The first listed, the canvas prints (and listed as 'Canvas Print') are smaller but are of much better quality than the 24 inches listed at the end (listed as '24" Inch Canvas'). All the smaller ones are sourced from one company and are just beautiful. Quality is crucial for an artist like Vermeer's work soo these are the ones I would recommend the highest. The 24" inches are sourced alsewhere and while fine, they are not the same quality.
Whatever size, these prints are a 100 times better than an ordianry print or poster.
