Vermeer's art has a special quality of light, illuminating his scenes of interiors as if with a magical glow. This is a perfect introduction to the work of a rare genius. In bite-size entries, the author looks at the artist's life, the creative influences that determined his style, the role of the materials he chose to use, as well as his pioneering experiments with a "dark room," prefiguring photography by almost two centuries.
