Vermeer: The Astronomer: One Hundred Paintings
Hardcover (no d.j.)
Federico Zeri (ed); Elena Mazour (ed); Susan Scott (tr). The astronomer is a frequent subject in 17th century Flemish & Dutch art, but what distinguishes Vermeer’s painting “The Astronomer” from genre painting & makes it unique is the handling of the light. It streams through the window & becomes color, it gleams off fabrics & wood & circulates throughout the room, which loses its realistic connotations & becomes a moment of eternity suspended in silence. This volume includes 100 full-color reproductions of paintings by Vermeer, as well as text. The book also includes a chronological reading of Vermeer’s principal works; some documents & testimonies on Vermeer; a brief chronology of his life; a list of museums where Vermeer’s paintings can be seen; & a bibliography.
