            Pieter de Hooch

            Pieter de Hooch in Delft: From the Shadow of Vermeer new logo

            11 October 2019–16 February 2020

            Museum Prinsenh - Delft
            T +31 (0)15 260 23 58

            The exhibition is the first retrospective of the artist’s work in his own country. After Vermeer, Pieter de Hooch is widely considered to be the most celebrated Delft master of the 17th century. The paintings De Hooch produced in Delft (c. 1652–1660) will be at the heart of the exhibition: his most beautiful courtyards and interiors will return to the city where they were painted almost 400 years ago.

            29 works will be coming to Delft on loan from leading museums in Europe and the United States. These include many famous paintings never before exhibited in the Netherlands such as the well-known from the National Gallery, London. Other Pieter de Hooch masterpieces will come from Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, the Kunsthaus Zürich and the National Gallery of Art in Washington. An extraordinary work on loan from the Royal Collection of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is the masterpiece . In addition, the exhibition will comprise works on loan from the , the , the and of course the , which holds one of the largest collections of De Hoochs in the world.

            Nicolaes Maes - Rembrandt’s Versatile Pupil new logo

            Mauritshuis, The Hague
            17 October 2019–19 January 2020

            Concluding the Rembrandt & the Golden Age year the Mauritshuis will stage the first international retrospective exhibition about one of Rembrandt's most talented students, Nicolaes Maes.

            2018救济金6元棋牌With his original representations of everyday life, Nicolaes Maes was one of the most innovative painters of the Dutch Golden Age. His domestic scenes have been a source of inspiration for painters such as Pieter de Hooch and Johannes Vermeer. In his lifelike representation of emotions, Maes shows himself to be a fully-fledged student of Rembrandt.

            Maes began his career by painting Biblical stories, in which the influence of his teacher is clearly visible. Rembrandt was a dedicated teacher who challenged his pupils to be inventive and come up with new things. Maes was inspired by his teacher, but at the same time always looked for his own, new solutions. This can be clearly seen in The Sacrifice of Isaac (c. 1653). Maes gave this Biblical theme an explosive charge.

            2018救济金6元棋牌In the following years, Maes painted intimate scenes with women engaged in their household duties. The eavesdroppers are a favourite; representations of how the lady of the house catches her maid with a lover. Roguishly and conspiratorially, the woman looks at us; with her finger on her lips she draws the attention of the viewer and calls for silence. Some beautiful "eavesdroppers" will be on loan from the Dordrechts Museum, the Guildhall Art Gallery and the Wellington Museum (both London).

            The second venue of the exhibition wil be held at the National Gallery, London,

            Exploring the Physical and Psychological Realities in Vermeer’s Genre Paintings new logo

            Lecture by Arthur K. Wheelock Jr.
            Wallace Collection, London
            November 11, 2019 (17:00–18:30)

            2018救济金6元棋牌Vermeer' s genre paintings depict men and women engaged in daily activities that seem familiar and related to our own lives. We greatly admire his ability to depict the physical reality of these scenes, whether through the shimmer of satin, the translucency of glass, or his mastery of light. Less noticed, however, is how successfully he conveyed the inner life of his figures. This talk by will examine this important aspect of Vermeer' s artistic genius by examining the types of moments he portrayed, and the relationships of his figures to their milieu.

            Arthur K. Wheelock Jr. is Senior Advisor to . He recently retired as curator of Northern Baroque painting at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and as Professor of Art History at the University of Maryland. During his tenure at the National Gallery from 1975 to 2018, Wheelock oversaw a significant expansion of the Gallery’s collection of Dutch and Flemish paintings and organized a number of major exhibitions.

Parallel visions is the result of an extensive and important research project on the part of the Museum arising from a collaborative agreement with the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, which will be lending a significant group of works, in which ties between late 16th- and early 17th-century Dutch and Spanish painting will be investigated.

            2018救济金6元棋牌The exhibition will offer a reflection on the pictorial traditions represented by Spain and the Low Countries. While the art-historical literature, particularly that generated in Holland, has considered these traditions as essentially different, this exhibition will aim to juxtapose the historical myths and artistic realities of the two countries and to reflect on the numerous traits that they share.

            New four-part Vermeer TV series new logo

            Silenzi di Vermeer (The Silences of Vermeer), in four episodes

            author: Tomaso Montanari
            director: Luca Criscenti
            director of photography: Francesco Lo Gullo
            editor: Emanuele Redondi and Anjan Di Leonardo
            music: Giorgio Giampà
            language: Italian
            produced by:

            On January 11, (9:15 P.M), , the Italian public cultural TV channel, will broadcast the fourth and final episode of the four-part series, I Silenzi di Vermeer (Vermeer's Silences).

            2018救济金6元棋牌The series' author, the Italian art historian, academic and newspaper columnist , is well known to the Italian public for his brilliant multi-episode TV series on Caravaggio and Bernini (see information below).

            Guided along voyages throughout America and Europe to rediscover Vermeer and his surviving 36 canvases, the spectator is awarded a number of surprisingly fresh insights into the artist's seemingly faceless art by means of an exacting but intuitive reading of the thematic content and composition of each work, while simultaneously fleshing out the circumstances in which the artist lived and painted. To enrich the viewer's parallel voyage, the narrative is peppered with lesser-known but evocative experiences of the collectors, art historians, writers and painters who, like Montanari himself, have endeavored to sound the silent depths of Vermeer's art.

            I Silenzi di Vermeer confirms Montanari's aptitude as a narrator as well as his commitment to divulging the works of the great artists of the past. Drawing force from an unmediated participation and complete command of historical material, he is able to arouse intellectual inquiry and transmit the essential poetry of a work of art even to the neophyte, in effect, transporting him back in time to the moment of its creation. Perhaps the only shortcoming of the series, at least for the moment, is that it is accessible only to those familiar with Italian.

            All four episodes will be accessible online at a date to be announced.

            broadcasting schedule:
            December 21, 2018 | La poesia di ogni giorno (The Poetry of Everday Life)
            December 28, 18 | Il dentro e il fuori (The Inside and the Outside)

            January 11, 2019 | Con altri sensi (With Other Senses)

            Dr. Abbie Vandivere will give a lecture about the recent technical examination of Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring, the most beloved painting in the collection of the Mauritshuis.

            2018救济金6元棋牌The painting was last examined in 1994, during a conservation treatment. Although further restoration was not required, major advances in non-invasive technical analysis have been made over the last 25 years making it possible to learn more about how Vermeer painted his most iconic work, as well as the materials that he used.

            Earlier this year, the painting was the subject of an in-depth scientific examination project: . The technical examination was conducted over a two-week period in front of the museum public. An international team of experts used the latest scientific technology to examine the Girl, including: macro x-ray fluorescence scanning, near-infrared imaging, optical coherence tomography, 3D digital microscopy, macro-x-ray powder diffraction, colour/gloss/topography scanning, and the re-examination of paint samples taken 1994.

            New location proposed for Vermeer's house

            Vermeer's House Revisited
            click here

            In his article Johannes Vermeer and his Neighbors (2017), Hans Slager tentatively supposed that what has been traditionally believed to be the location of Vermeer's house in Delft—Oude Langendijk/corner Molenpoort alley—may not be correct. Following additional investigation, Slager strengthened his case and has come to the conclusion that Vermeer's house was more likely located at the opposite (western) corner of the Molenpoort alley. In the past, this location had been dismissed for reasons that Slager now shows to be unfounded. In his new article, Vermeer's House Revisited2018救济金6元棋牌, Slager details all of his arguments, which are supported by primary archival sources.

            Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

            2018救济金6元棋牌Soon after Pieter Teding van Berkhout, a young scion of a landed gentry family from The Hague, made a visit to Vermeer's studio in June 1669, he wrote in his diary, "I went to see a celebrated painter named Vermeer." But Van Berkhout understood Vermeer's paintings differently than we do today. He described them not as "allegories" or "scenes of daily life," much less "masterpieces of light" or "suspended moments in time" that "exude silence." Van Berkhout wrote that the most "extraordinary and curious aspect" of Vermeer's art consists in "perspective."

            This new and richly-illustrated two-part study is the most comprehensive examination thus far undertaken into Vermeer and linear perspective. The first part2018救济金6元棋牌 considers how Vermeer and his contemporaries could have acquired knowledge of linear perspective needed to create the sensation of foreshortening and spatial recession in their paintings. The methods considered include geometric construction, the drawing frame, the pin-and-string method and the camera obscura. Each of these four methods is first examined in its functionality and practicality, and then weighed against correlating evidence exhibited in Vermeer's paintings.

            The second part examines the perspective armature of each of his paintings, reveling their strengths, weakness and anomalies.

            Also included are perspective diagrams of each painting, a list of period perspective manuals—many of which can be downloaded integrally in PDF format—a glossary of perspective terms as well as a list of writings focused on questions of Vermeer and perspective.

            2018

            This slim but richly illustrated publication is the second volume in the Frick Diptych Series, which pairs an essay by Margaret Iacono, the Frick’s Associate Research Curator, with a literary piece by Academy Award-winning film director, producer and screenwriter James Ivory.

            Particularity fascinating for Vermeer devotees is Iacono's 36-page essay, which examines the picture from its inception to the complicated financial transactions which brought the Maid and Mistress— the third and last Vermeer—to the collection of the New York magnate , who assembled one of the While the painting's authorship has rarely been questioned, its oversized figures, dark background and anomalous execution have been a source of considerable debate. Iacono weighs the various sides and, after analyzing the work's theme and composition, provides the most insightful “picture” yet proposed of this luxurious but enigmatic canvas. She also discusses the recent technical examination of the picture performed by the Metropolitan Museum of Art conservation department which provides provisional—a full report is forthcoming—but exciting new evidence concerning work's compositional iter as well as its present condition, allowing us to gaze deeper into the artist's intentions and the picture-making process. Included is a revised provenance.

            Margaret Iacono is associate research curator at The Frick Collection. Her areas of interest include northern European painting of the fifteenth to seventeenth centuries and the history of collecting. Most recently she organized Vermeer, Rembrandt and Hals: Masterpieces of Dutch Painting from the Mauritshuis (2014), and also served as the Frick coordinator for The Frick Collection: Art Treasures in New York, held at the Mauritshuis, The Hague (2015).

            James Ivory is an American film director, producer and screenwriter. Films produced by his company Merchant Ivory Productions (producer Ismail Merchant and script writer Ruth Prawer Jhabvalar) won six Academy Awards. For his work onCall Me by Your Name (2017), which he wrote and produced, Ivory won awards for Best Adapted Screenplay from the Academy Awards, British Academy of Film and Television Arts, Writers Guild of America, the Critics' Choice Awards, and the Scripter Awards, among others.

            Meet Vermeer

            In cooperation with 18 art institutions that house paintings by Vermeer, Google has launched a new monographic website called Meet Vermeer as a part of its website. The new project features a ample series of videos and richly illustrated introductory essays that address various aspects Vermeer's life and artistic afterlife, including the artist's technique, defining themes and critical reception. The project also vaunts a smartphone app called Pocket Gallery. Pocket Gallery transforms an iOS- or Android-based smartphone into an ultra-high resolution exhibition that brings the complete works of Vermeer into a single Augmented Reality museum, designed specifically for the project by Google and curated by art historians.

            For the pleasure of the more discerning art lover a or savvy art scholar, the California-based technical Goliath has turned its Art Camera—designed specifically for photographing works of art—on eight canvases by Vermeer creating the highest-ever resolution image ever made. In various works (e.g., , or ) the level of magnification is so astounding that we can question if greater magnification is any longer necessary, outside for purely conservational needs. The remaining works were photographed by the museums and collectors themselves and vary in resolution and color quality. The best high-resolution images include: Diana and her Companions, Christ in the House of Martha and Mary, The Milkmaid, The Little Street, The Glass of Wine, Girl with a Wineglass, The View of Delft, Woman in Blue Reading a Letter, Woman with a Pearl Necklace, A Lady Writing, The Geographer, The Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Love Letter, A Lady Standing at a Virginal and A Lady Seated at a Virginal.

It is almost impossible to collect all of them; one must pick and choose in order to assemble a thematically coherent collection.

            Girl with a Pearl Earring undergoes a technical examination, on public view at the Mauritshuis

            Beginning Monday, February 26, Vermeer's iconic Girl with a Pearl Earring will undergo a two-week technical examination dubbed "The Girl in the Spotlight," at the Mauritshuis.

            Although further restoration is not required at the moment, major advances in non-invasive technical analysis made over the last 25 years will allow the painting to be examined deeper than before. Using the latest technologies, such as fluorescent X-rays, optical coherence tomography and digital microscopy, experts hope to answer a number of unanswered questions about the materials and methods Vermeer used to paint Girl with a Pearl Earring2018救济金6元棋牌. The project will take place 24 hours a day.

            Visitors will be able to observe the progress of the examination through an especially built transparent enclosure in the museum's the Golden Room. The collection's two other Vermeer paintings, View of Delft and Diana and her Companions remain on view in room 15.

            The project involves a team of internationally recognized specialists associated with the Netherlands Institute for Conservation, Art and Science (NICAS). The NICAS partners are Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, TU Delft, and Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (RCE)..

            The art of Painting, Johannes Vermeer

            New study of the provenance of Vermeer's The Art of Painting

            The Puzzle Solved? Notes on the Early Provenance of Vermeer's The Art of Painting
            by Erik de Visser
            http://nozong.cn/history/provenance-art-of-painting.html

            The Puzzle Solved? Notes on the Early Provenance of Vermeer's The Art of Painting sets out in well-considered detail the high probability that Vermeer's masterpiece did indeed, as suspected by some scholars, come to Vienna in 1745 at the time that Gerard van Swieten (1700–1772) took up his position as Empress Maria Theresa's personal physician. In addition, the paper shows that the Dutch doctor could not have come into possession of this painting if, in the immediate years following Vermeer's death (1675), the artist's wife, Catharina Bolnes, and his mother-in-law, Maria Thins, had failed to keep Vermeer's masterpiece safe in Delft. As will be shown, a chain of events set in motion by Maria Thins resulted in the painting leaving the Vermeer family to eventually come into the ownership of two Van Swieten generations.

            Johannes Vermeer and his Neighbours

            Detailed study of Vermeer's neighborhood with house-by-house database

            Johannes Vermeer and his Neighbours (PDF)
            by Hans G. Slager, independent researcher

            Click here for the PDF.

            It has been universally accepted that the mature Johannes Vermeer lived on Oude Langendijk in Delft, situated amidst the Catholic living quarter known as the Papist Corner. Following John Michael Montias ', published in 1989, however, no further research was conducted in regards to either the location of the artist's living quarters or the neighborhood in which he lived. Persuaded that a more accurate reconstruction of the Papist corner was possible, and that neighbors may influence the lives of its individual members, the independent researcher Hans Slager has examined afresh the circumstances of those who lived in the vicinity of Vermeer in the hopes of uncovering not only undiscovered information but clues for further research.

            2018救济金6元棋牌This new study of the Papist Corner investigates a wealth of housing and genealogical data in the light of house sales, taxation records, legal issues and other events, at times mundane, but nevertheless vital to the success of the reconstruction. Slager's analysis suggests that Vermeer's traditionally-held residence on the Oude Langendijk may, in fact, be erroneous, and that his real residence may still physically exist.

            Aside from the Papist neighborhood, other issues are addressed, such as the fate of the Mechelen inn, Van Ruijven's patronage and Van Leeuwenhoek's presumed friendship with Vermeer. Lastly, an analysis of the name linked to the two prominently-pictured heraldic stems that appear on the two stained-glass windows in Vermeer's The Glass of Wine and The Girl with a Wine Glass2018救济金6元棋牌 reveals possible links to various Leiden fijnschilder painters. Ties between some of Vermeer's principal clients are also described in detail.

            2018救济金6元棋牌Necessarily, a study containing such a significant amount of data demands a selective rather than a story-telling approach so that all data is organized within a house-by-house scheme. Moreover, data is published in full in order to serve as a springboard for future investigation—there may still be more information on Vermeer, hopefully complimenting Montias' seminal study on Vermeer and his extended family.

            Johannes Vermeer and his Neighbours2018救济金6元棋牌 may be read by art historians, Delft historians and Vermeer lay enthusiasts alike.

            restoration of Johannes Vermeer's Girl Reading a Letter at an Open WindowImage from the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister

            In March, 2017, the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meiste of Dresden removed Vermeer's Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window from the permanent exhibition in order to begin the restoration of the picture. The procedure will accompanied by an expert commission of five restorers and scientists from Dresden, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Vienna.

            to visit the museums website for further images and updates.

            Considering its age, the painting is stable in terms of its conservation condition. Its surface, however, is characterized by severely darkened layers of varnish and old retouching, and this above all gave rise to the decision to restore the painting. The restoration is taking place in the paintings conservation department at the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden and is being performed by paintings conservator Dr. Christoph Schölzel. Accompanying the restoration is a research project about the painting, carried out in cooperation with the archaeometry laboratory at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden, the Doerner-Institut at the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen München, the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and The National Gallery in London.

            Vermeer's Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window will be presented to the public when the renovation of the Gemäldegalerie in the Semperbau is complete and the museum reopens in 2019. It will be a highlight of the new permanent exhibition.

            from Oxford University press release:
            2018救济金6元棋牌 Jane Jelley has taken a new path in this detective story. A painter herself, she has worked with the materials of his time: the cochineal insect and lapis lazuli; the sheep bones, soot, earth and rust. She shows us how painters made their pictures layer by layer; she investigates old secrets; and hears travelers' tales. She explores how Vermeer could have used a lens in the creation of his masterpieces, and made some experiments in her own studio to transfer images from projections directly to a canvas. She has found a reliable solution that corresponds to the scientific examination of Vermeer's work, which provides answers to some of the puzzles he left behind.

            The clues were there all along. After all this time, now we can unlock the studio door, and catch a glimpse of Vermeer inside, painting light.

            2018救济金6元棋牌Jane Jelley is a painter of still life and landscape who became interested in the unusual technical qualities of Vermeer's painting, and in the arguments about whether or not he might have used a camera obscura in his work. Jane lives and works in Oxford. More information about Jane and her work can be found on .

            The Thread Count Automation Project2018救济金6元棋牌 (TCAP) (link is external) launched by Professor Johnson in 2007 discovered striped patterns in color-coded images of local thread densities obtained from digital image processing of x-radiographs of Old Master paintings on canvas. These striped patterns provide a "fingerprint" for pieces of canvas cut from the same roll. This spurred a four-year effort assisted by the late Walter Liedtke, one of the world's leading scholars of Dutch and Flemish paintings, to gather x-radiographs of all thirty-four paintings on canvas by Vermeer. Six matching pairs of roll-mates have been identified thus far that provide evidence regarding authentication, dating and —potentially—artistic intent. In addition to weave density maps, images were created of thread angle from their nominal horizontal and vertical directions. These angle maps provide forensic information regarding warp/weft thread designation and cusping, which offers insight into Vermeer's studio practice and the possible re-sizing of his paintings since their creation. The insights generated by computed weave maps arising from the application of digital image processing are pioneering contributions from engineering to the emerging field of computational art history.

            Rather than attempting to establish direct links between Vermeer and specific artworks of his time, the goal of this web article is to trace the evolution of both the themes and compositions which can be associated with each painting by Vermeer, before and after it was presumably executed. Therefore not only works traditionally linked to Vermeer's paintings are listed but a broad range of artworks which a range from Classical times to the 20th century.

            Hopefully, this approach will provide useful information not only for the seasoned art historian but for a wider readership. Some of the pictures, like Vermeer's Woman with a Lute2018救济金6元棋牌, unravel like a film, exhibiting relatively few compositional inventions but many symbolic variations.

            Johannes Vermeer's Girl with the Wine Glass at the Herzog Anton Ulrich-Museum in Brunswick will back to its place in the museum, which will reopen on 23 October, 2016, after seven years renovation.

            Due to renovation was the Herzo- Anton Ulrich Museum closed for years in Brunswick, Lower Saxony. Some of the masterpieces from the collection, including Vermeer's Girl with a Wine Glass were housed in a gallery of the Danwarderode castle in the same city.


            The Little Street, Philip Steadman

            Frans Grijzenhout proposes new location of Vermeer's Little Street.
            Philip Steadman argues there is a better fit.

            Frans Grijzenhout has recently proposed that Vermeer's The Little Street shows houses at 40 and 42 Vlamingstraat in Delft. His theory is the subject of a current exhibition at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Philip Steadman, author of Vermeer's Camera, argues the case for an alternative location on the Voldersgracht. Steadman's case is supported with contemporary maps, drawings and a 19th century photograph.

            Vermeer: The Complete Paintings

            New Vermeer monograph


            Karl Schütz
            December 5, 2015

            from the Taschen website:
            The Dutch Republic in the seventeenth century was home to one of the greatest flowerings of painting in the history of Western art. Freed from the constraints of royal and church patronage, artists created a rich outpouring of works that circulated through an open market to patrons and customers at every level of Dutch society. The closely observed details of daily life captured in portraits, genre scenes and landscapes offer a wealth of information about the possessions, activities and circumstances that distinguished members of the social classes, from the nobility to the urban poor. The dazzling array of paintings gathered here—by artists such as Frans Hals, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch and Gerrit ter Borch, as well as Rembrandt and Vermeer—illuminated by essays from leading scholars, invites us to explore a vibrant early modern society and its reflection in a golden age of brilliant painting.

            This XL edition brings together the complete catalog of Vermeer's work, presenting the calm yet compelling scenes so treasured in galleries across Europe and the United States into one monograph of utmost reproduction quality. With brand new photography of many works, Vermeer's restrained but richly evocative repertoire of domestic actions—ranging from letter writing to music making to preparations in the kitchen—unfolds in a generous format, including three fold-out spreads. Numerous details emphasize the artist's remarkable ability not only to bear witness to the trends and trimmings of the Dutch Golden Age but also to encapsulate an entire story in just one transient gesture, expression, or look.

            Cesar va Everdingen

            Award-winning exhibition of Vermeer's contemporary, Caesar van Everdingen

            Painting Beauty - Caesar van Everdingen (1616/1617–1678)
            Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar, Alkmaar

            September 24, 2016– January 26, 2017

            0Perhaps not all Vermeer devotees are familiar with the work of the Dutch history painter Cesar van Everdingen, but it is likely that Vermeer was very much so. Although it has not survived, art historians, believe that the large-scale painting of Cupid that once appeared four of Vermeer's interiors was probably by his hand (a Cupid was listed among the personal art collection of Maria Thins Vermeer's mother-in-law). Certainly, Van Everdingen's exceptional technique could not have been lost on Vermeer and perhaps works of such exquisite intimacy and formal perfection, , struck a particularly sympathetic chord with the Delft master.

            After four hundred years after his birth Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar presents the first monographic exhibition of Van Everdingen, whose "flattering brush" allowed him to capture on canvas the softness of velvet, the sleekness of fur and the sheen of fabrics in his impressive history paintings and civic guard portraits. The exhibition brings together works by Van Everdingen from Dutch and foreign museums and private collections to Alkmaar as well as the Rijksmuseum's recently purchased Young Woman in a Broad-Brimmed Hat. Other keys works will be lent by museums in Dresden and Stockholm especially for this occasion. Venus from The Hague will be reunited with Adonis from Cape Town. A recently discovered painting of a sensual peasant woman from a Russian private collection will also be on display.

            The museum has won the prestigious Dutch Turing Award II for the exhibition concept.

            Hound in the Hunt

            Vermeer-related installation at the MONA, Hobart, Australia

            HOUND IN THE HUNT
            Museum of Old and New Art
            Hobart, Australia
            beginning July 2, 2016

            2018救济金6元棋牌Did Vermeer use the comparator mirror to paint?

            The2018救济金6元棋牌 in Hobart, Australia is currently staging an installation which explores the presumed use of optical devices by various seventeenth-century painters in order to reach the astonishing illusionist qualities their works.

            The exhibition centers around a simple optical device invented by the American businessman Tim Jension, called the comparator mirror, which Jenison claims may have allowed these painters to copy the forms, colors and tones of nature directly to their canvases, bypassing traditional methods (see Tim's Vermeer, 2013).

            In a series of innovative experiments 10 contemporary painters will test various applications of the Jenison's comparator mirror to recreate such works as Vermeer's Girl with Red Hat, Caravaggio's Supper at Emmaus and a still-life by Willem Claesz. Heda's from reconstructed settings and live models, all of which on public view.

            Jonathan Janson, painter and author of the Essential Vermeer website, will paint two versions of Vermeer's A Lady Standing at a Virginal from a full scale mock-up of the picture's scene. The first will be executed using traditional painting procedures and with the aid of a booth- type camera obscura (as proposed by Philip Steadman), and the second using Jension's comparator mirror. It is hoped that by comparing the finished works executed within a controlled experimental conditions light may be shed light on to what extent Vermeer might have employed optical devices in his work.

            The exhibition is accompanied by a richly illustrated catalogue that presents two contrasting essays. In the first, Jension explains his innovative hypothesis via a lively, first-person discovery trip while in the second Janson attempts to illustrate how Vermeer worked with a camera obscura while remaining largely within the bounds of traditional studio procedures. Janson also makes some considerations on Vermeer's peculiar brand of realism with a few comments on Jenison's device.

Once described as the "'ultimate geek documentary,"' the film pays patient, passionate attention to Jenison's investigative processes, their technical details and the delights of discovery. You may or may not be convinced by Tim's premise—that Vermeer was aided by novel optical instruments—but you will want him to succeed in his ultimate goal of painting a Vermeer himself.

            Vermeer's Geographer visits the Hermitage

            from Hermitage press release:
            When speaking of the history of Vermeer's remarkable picture, which over the course of the centuries changed hands on multiple occasions and spent time in several European countries, mention must be made of one intriguing, albeit brief "Russian" episode. The memory of it is preserved by an oval stamp inscribed "GALERIE DE SAN DONATO" on the back of the canvas, and a half-erased mark made with sealing-wax on the stretcher. Also attached to the back of the painting is a sheet of paper carrying a detailed list of the collections through which it passed between 1713 and 1872. Around 1877, The Geographer was bought in Paris by the Russian businessman and art patron Pavel Pavlovich Demidov (1839–1885). After inheriting the famous Villa San Donato outside Florence from his uncle, he settled in Italy. There the connoisseur enlarged through his own purchases the art collections assembled by several generations of Demidovs. Soon, though, as early as 1880, Pavel Pavlovich decided to sell the villa and its treasures and to move to a new estate, Pratolino. On 15 March, 1880, a tremendous auction began at San Donato that went on for several days. The Vermeer was Lot 1124 in the auction catalogue.

            2018救济金6元棋牌

            from the museum website:
            The Dallas Museum of Art presents Vermeer Suite: Music in Seventeenth-Century Dutch Painting, an exhibition organized by the DMA showcasing paintings from the prestigious Leiden Collection of New York, including a work by Johannes Vermeer. The great seventeenth-century Dutch painter created fewer than forty paintings during his lifetime, and Young Woman Seated at a Virginal from 1670–72 is believed to be one of Vermeer's last. This masterpiece is the inspiration for the DMA exhibition Vermeer Suite: Music in Seventeenth-Century Dutch Painting, which includes seven additional loans from The Leiden Collection of works by Vermeer's contemporaries—artists Jan Steen, Gerrit ter Borch, Jacob Adriaensz Ochtervelt, Eglon van der Neer, Gerard Dou, and Frans van Mieris—whose paintings also portray musicians performing period instruments such as the lute, violin and violincello and demonstrate key aspects of seventeenth-century musical culture.

            February 24–May 29, 2016


            from the museum website:
            This groundbreaking exhibition examines seventeenth-century Dutch paintings in light of the new Republic's social structure. Although the Dutch Republic was relatively democratic at the time, class distinctions remained and conveyed a variety of meanings to its citizens.

            Through approximately 71 carefully selected and arranged paintings, this exhibition will present the ways in which Dutch pictures reflect various socio-economic groups. Additionally, three place settings featuring the everyday tableware of the upper, middle and lower classes will bring to life the tangible differences within the Republic's stratified population.

            By exploring how class distinctions were expressed and the associations each group held, a more nuanced picture of Dutch society will emerge. Highlights of the exhibition include Vermeer's A Lady Writing and portraits by Rembrandt and Hals.

            This exhibition was organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

            The Dutch Golden Age of Dutch history spanned the seventeenth century, and it was during this period that the Netherlands underwent great development. In the field of painting, a great many excellent painters produced numerous splendid masterpieces. They include well-known painters such as the painter of light, Johannes Vermeer (1632–1675) from Delft, as well as Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606–1669) famed in Amsterdam, and then more widely for his unique ideas, techniques and composition. Their paintings remain still colorful and vivid even after 400 years, leaving the viewer with a powerful impression.

            Little Street, Johannes Vermeer

            Exact location of Vermeer's Little Street finally discovered?

            from:
            Janene Pieters, "Mystery of world-famous Vermeer setting finally solved"
            November 19, 2015
            NLTIMES.NL

            The century-old mystery of the exact location of Johannes Vermeer's painting Little Street2018救济金6元棋牌, has finally been solved. The setting for the world-famous painting is on Vlamingstraat in Delft, where houses 40–-42 now stand.

            This extraordinary revelation was made by , professor of Art History at the University of Amsterdam, the Rijksmuseum announced on Thursday.

            Grijzenhout searched seventeenth-century records in the Delft archives and found the conclusive answer in The file of the deep waters within the city of Delft from 1667, also called the Register of the quayside fee. This register kept record of how much tax everyone who owned a house on a canal in Delft had to pay for the deepening of the canal and for maintenance of the wharf in front of his door. It contains detailed, accurate up to 15 cm., information on the breath of all the houses and ports on the Delft canals in Vermeer's time.

            The two houses that then stood on where numbers 40–42 are now located, completely correspond with the Little Street2018救济金6元棋牌. No other houses from Vermeer's time correspond so exactly.

            The research also revealed that Vermeer's aunt—the widow Ariaentgen Claes van der Minne, Vermeer's father's half-sister—lived in the house on the right side of the painting. Vermeer's mother and sister lived on the same canal, diagonally across the street. According to the Rijksmuseum, it is therefore likely that Vermeer knew the house well and had personal memories linked to it.

            "The answer to the question of where Vermeer's Little Street2018救济金6元棋牌 is located, is of great significance and will have profound consequences, both for the way we look at this one painting by Vermeer as well as for the image we have of Vermeer as an artist," said , curator of seventeenth-century paintings at the Rijksmuseum.

            To celebrate the Little Street's address being found, the Rijksmuseum is dedicating an exhibition to the discovery. The exhibition will be in the Rijksmuseum between November 20th of this year and March 13th, 2016.

            TRIPE GATE

            from the Rijksmuseum website:

            The houses now on the site were built in the last quarter of the nineteenth century. The only aspect that can still be recognized as it appears in The Little Street is the striking gate and passageway on the right. The investigation also revealed that the house on the right in The Little Street belonged to Vermeer's widowed aunt, Ariaentgen Claes van der Minne, his father's half-sister. She earned her living and provided for her five children by selling tripe, and the passageway beside the house was known as the Penspoort—Tripe Gate. We also know that Vermeer's mother and sister lived on the same canal, diagonally opposite.

            by Philip Steadman

His theory is the subject of a current exhibition at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. , author of , argues the case for an alternative location on the Voldersgracht. Steadman's case is supported with contemporary maps, drawings and a 19th century photograph.

            2018救济金6元棋牌

            from the publisher's website:
            In Eye of the Beholder, Laura J. Snyder transports us to the streets, inns and guildhalls of seventeenth-century Holland, where artists and scientists gathered, and to their studios and laboratories, where they mixed paints and prepared canvases, ground and polished lenses, examined and dissected insects and other animals, and invented the modern notion of seeing. With charm and narrative flair Snyder brings Vermeer and Van Leeuwenhoek—and the men and women around them—vividly to life. The story of these two geniuses and the transformation they engendered shows us why we see the world—and our place within it—as we do today.

            reviews:

            "Rich and Rewarding"—Graeme Wood, The American Scholar

            "It is clear that Snyder is out of her depth in much of the perspective and optics that she discusses. She gives a rather abbreviated account of the experiments made with cameras by art historians and fails to pinpoint properly what exactly it was that led them and numerous others to suspect Vermeer of using the camera in the first place. She rejects out of hand my own theoretical and experimental work. And she makes no mention of Tim Jenison's very remarkable experiment, which proves beyond doubt the feasibility of painting in color and in meticulous minute detail with a camera obscura. Indeed all the exciting work that has been happening on these questions over the last fifteen years is absent from Snyder's account. This is work in progress, there are many matters of debate and uncertainty, and much remains to be investigated and discovered. But what an opportunity has been missed here!" Philip Steadman (author of Vermeer's, 2001) Amazon Customer Review
            2018救济金6元棋牌

            "Laura Snyder is both a masterly scholar and a powerful storyteller. In Eye of the Beholder, she transports us to the wonder-age of seventeenth-century Holland, as new discoveries in optics were shaping the two great geniuses of Delft—Vermeer and van Leeuwenhoek—and changing the course of art and science forever. A fabulous book."
            2018救济金6元棋牌 —Oliver Sacks

            Jonathan Lopez, The Wall Street Journal Online


            "Eye of the Beholder is a thoughtful elaboration of the modern notion of seeing. Laura J. Snyder delves into the seventeenth century fascination with the tools of art and science, and shows how they came together to help us make sense of what is right in front of our eyes."

            all information below from the :
            The Dutch artists of the seventeenth century painted ordinary people doing everyday things. They offer us a glimpse into the rambunctious life of village taverns and peasant cottages, and the quiet domesticity of courtyards and parlors. While the subject­-matter may be ordinary—the preparation of food, eating and drinking, the enjoyment of music or a family game—the painting is rich and jewel-like, with equal attention paid to a discarded clay pipe as to a fine silk drape. The meticulously documented details often allude to a work's deeper meaning or to moral messages that would have been familiar to the contemporary viewer.

            Presenting 27 masterpieces from the Royal Collection, the exhibition includes works by Gerrit Dou, Gabriel Metsu, Jan Steen and Pieter de Hooch, and Johannes Vermeer's Music Lesson (A Lady at a Virginal with a Gentleman).

            Masters of the Everyday: Dutch Artists in the Age of Vermeer
            Desmond Shawe-Taylor and Quentin Buvelot
            2018救济金6元棋牌 Hardback, 176 pages, 289 x 233 mm, over 150 color illustrations

            During the seventeenth century, Dutch artists were unparalleled in their dedication to depicting ordinary people doing everyday things. Genre painting was the pre-eminent expression of this dedication, offering candid glimpses into the peasant cottages and village courtyards of the Dutch Golden Age, each painting lit with the period's vibrant color palette and rich with radiant natural light.

            2018救济金6元棋牌This superb collection focuses on a selection of works of Dutch genre painting from the Royal Collection's holdings. Johannes Vermeer, Jan Steen, Gerrit Dou, Gabriel Metsu, and Pieter de Hooch are among the masters whose works are finely reproduced here. While the subject matter may be ordinary—the preparation of food, the bustle of a busy market, the enjoyment of taverns and town festivities—the meticulously documented details often allude to a work's deeper meaning, that would have been familiar to the contemporary viewer.

            The book explores these hidden moral messages, as well as the artist's penchant for clever visual puns.

            from publisher's website:
            A lyrical and intimate account of how a poet, in the midst of a bad divorce, finds consolation and grace through viewing the paintings of Vermeer, in six world cities. In the midst of a divorce (in which the custody of his young daughter is at stake) and over the course of a year, the poet Michael White, travels to Amsterdam, The Hague, Delft, London, Washington and New York to view the paintings of Johannes Vermeer, an artist obsessed with romance and the inner life. He is astounded by how consoling it is to look closely at Vermeer's women, at the artist's relationship to his subjects, and at how composition reflects back to the viewer such deep feeling. Includes the author's very personal study of Vermeer. Through these travels and his encounters with Vermeer's radiant vision, White finds grace and personal transformation.

            from the CODART website:
            Organized by the MFA, this groundbreaking exhibition proposes a new approach to the understanding of seventeenth-century Dutch painting. Included are 75 carefully selected and beautifully preserved portraits, genre scenes, landscapes and seascapes borrowed from European and American public and private collections—including masterpieces never before seen in the US. The show will reflect, for the first time, the ways in which art signals the socioeconomic groups of the new Dutch Republic, from the Princes of Orange to the most indigent of citizens. Class distinctions had meaning and were expressed in the type of work depicted (or the lack thereof), the costumes, a figure's comportment and behavior, or his physical environment. Arranged according to seventeenth-century ideas about social stratification, paintings by artists such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch, Gerrit ter Borch and Gabriel Metsu, will be divided into three classes—upper, middle and lower—and further sub-divided into eight categories. A final section will explore the places where the classes in Dutch society met one another. Additionally, 45 works of decorative arts—objects used by each class but diverging in material and decoration (for example, salt cellars, candlesticks, mustard pots, linens)—will be installed in three table settings to highlight material differences among the classes. The accompanying publication features essays by a team of distinguished Dutch scholars and exhibition curator, the MFA's William and Ann Elfers Senior Curator of Paintings.

            tickets information:
            To order tickets by phone, call 1-800-440-6975; to order in person, visit any MFA ticket desk. Tickets must be purchased prior to the start of the first session; individual sessions are not available.

            from exhibition web page:
            Seventeenth-century Holland's withdrawal from religious painting to an emphasis on the appreciation of the everyday opened up a new worldview. It was not only the images of women, wives and their husbands, it was also the mothers within the interior settings and the masters of the kitchens that were painted. Furthermore, it was the fashions that colored lives in feminine cultivation and religious practices that resulted in painted works. These were the opening acts of the "world theater" of women's entry onto the world stage. Vermeer's Young Woman with a Water Pitcher and Rembrandt's Verona2018救济金6元棋牌 are the highlights of this Japan premier.

            Vermeer's Young Woman with a Water Pitcher will return in Spring 2016 to the Metropolitan after two other venues in Japan.

            Walter Liedtke dies in tragic train crash

            , Curator of Metropolitan Museum of Art and renowned Vermeer expert as well as one of the most distinguished scholars of Dutch and Flemish painting in the world, died in the train incident outside New York on the evening of February 3. Walter was returning to his home in Bedford Hills, where he lived with his wife, Nancy. As was his habit, he was riding the front "quiet car," in which he found the tranquility necessary for writing and reading. Five other people died in the accident.

            Walter conjugated culture, curiosity, passion and rigor in whatever he wrote and in all the exhibitions he curated, whether it be the monumental Vermeer and the Delft School or the intimately scaled Vermeer's Masterpiece: 'The Milkmaid'. The catalogue of the former remains a fundamental contribution to the proper contextualization of the artist. His monograph (Vermeer: The Complete Paintings2018救济金6元棋牌) constitutes a finely nuanced reading of the artist's unique accomplishments in the light of modern Vermeer scholarship. But Walter interest in things Vermeer was wide and varied enough to comprise a computerized analysis of the weave of the artist's canvases or the opinions from practicing artists and art lovers outside of the art institutional setting.

            2018救济金6元棋牌Walter's energy, brilliance and organizational capacity allowed him to publish extensively and curate a number of key exhibitions at the Metropolitan.

            His most important exhibitions include:
            Vermeer: il secolo d'oro dell'arte olandese (September 2012-January 2013), Rembrandt at Work: The Great Portrait from Kenwood House (April-May 2012), Vermeer's Masterpiece: The Milkmaid (September-November 2009), The Age of Rembrandt: Dutch Paintings in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (September 2007-January 2008) and Vermeer and the Delft School (June-September 2001). The latter brought in over 500,000 visitors to the Metropolitan.

            His most important publications include:
            Vermeer: The Complete Paintings (2008), (2001), Vermeer and the Delft School (1995), Rembrandt/not Rembrandt in the Metropolitan Museum of Art: Aspects of Connoisseurship (1992) and Flemish Paintings in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (1982).

            Lawrence Weschler | "Posers: Marvel, Majesty and Sovereignty among the Habsburgs and in Vermeer"
            Sunday, April 19, 2015 at 2:00 pm

            With one of the world's finest Vermeer paintings presently residing at the MIA alongside a magnificent exhibition of Habsburg splendors, Lawrence Weschler will unpack a posit about posing and the posed. Kings, queens, noblemen and noblewomen are continually striking a pose, but who exactly is posing whom (and what?) when a painter attempts to capture that stance? And what was Vermeer up to when he set about capturing something altogether new and different in his portraits? In other words, what does it mean to be sovereign—sovereign over what, in whose eyes, and to what end?

            2018救济金6元棋牌Lawrence Weschler is director emeritus of the New York Institute for the Humanities at NYU and author of such books as Vermeer in Bosnia and Mr. Wilson's Cabinet of Wonder.

            THE STREAM AND THE TORRENT – THE CURIOUS CASE OF JAN TORRENTIUS AND THE FOLLOWERS OF THE ROSY
            by Brian Howell
            2014
            Limited to 82 numbered copies

            "Having been rescued from prison and torture in Haarlem, as of 1632 Torrentius is confined to a secret chamber in White Hall to be the King's painter. He is not allowed to go out except at night and the early morning and must show a special pass to the guards. After making the acquaintance of a fellow Dutch painter one morning, Simon, he visits him and his wife, who reminds him of one of his many amours in Holland. Later, King Charles asks him to do a portrait of himself and his wife."

            So begins a fascinating novel of history, magic and moral terror. A grand oeuvre in the tradition of Leo Perutz.

            In 2001, Philip Steadman published , a book that offered new evidence that the great Dutch painter relied on optical methods. An American video engineer Tim Jenison read the book and, believing he could take the argument further, proposed a simple arrangement of lens and mirrors that Vermeer might have employed. Jenison used this setup to paint a version of The Music Lesson in the Queen's collection. The process was filmed for the Oscar-shortlisted documentary Tim's Vermeer2018救济金6元棋牌, released in 2014. Jenison's method throws more light, literally, on how Vermeer could have achieved his distinctively "photographic" tonal effects.

            from the 92/Y website:
            It seems unimaginable now, but the works of Piero della Francesca and Vermeer were forgotten and neglected for longer than they have been admired. No other great painter has been overlooked for such a long time as Botticelli. Hardly anyone paid much attention to Frans Hals and Giotto for many years. Why have tastes in art have been changing since art first came into being? Milton Esterow, former publisher of ARTnews, gives a fascinating perspective.

            "See for yourself!" was the clarion call of the 1600s. Scientists peered at nature through microscopes and telescopes, making the discoveries in astronomy, physics, chemistry and anatomy that ignited the Scientific Revolution. Artists investigated nature with lenses, mirrors and camera obscuras, creating extraordinarily detailed paintings of flowers and insects, and scenes filled with realistic effects of light, shadow and color. By extending the reach of sight the new optical instruments prompted the realization that there is more than meets the eye. But they also raised questions about how we see and what it means to see. In answering these questions, scientists and artists in Delft changed how we perceive the world. Author of , a Scientific American2018救济金6元棋牌 Notable Book, Laura Snyder returns to the Arboretum to share her latest book, , in which she pairs painter with natural philosopher to explain the revelatory ways of seeing in the seventeenth century.

            Vermeer in Hell  by Michael White

            Vermeer inspired poetry and memoir

            Vermeer in Hell
            by Michael White
            2013
            2018救济金6元棋牌

            from publisher's website:
            Through the paintings of Vermeer, Michael White explores new landscapes and transforms familiar ones in this extraordinary new collection of poems. This captivating masterwork transports us across eras and continents, from Confederate lynchings to the bombing of Dresden, through its lyrical inhabitations of some of Vermeer's most revered paintings, each one magically described and renewed. More than mere ekphrasis, Michael White explores the transformative possibilities of great art in his fourth collection.

            reviews:

            "Vermeer in Hell is Michael White's museum of ghosts and shades, of narratives woven masterfully out of the personal and historical alike—out of the lived, the envisioned, the loved, and the terrible. Rarely have I felt the ekphrastic to be as dramatic as in White's tour through the portraits of Vermeer, with its history of fiery damages, wars and afflictions, but also its own depiction of 'love's face as it is.' Out of Michael White's vision, each poem achieves for us the delicacy and durability of Vermeer's own art."
            —David Baker

            "Nearly every one of Michael White's new poems is the equivalent of a quiet stroll through a blazing fire, igniting the reader's imagination. His insights are frightening and comforting at the same time, his craft allowing for the most surprising and thrilling of associations. Vermeer in Hell is a collection that belongs in the room with all of the traditions of our language's poetry, but it brings something completely original to us, too. It is not an overstatement to call this poetry Genius."
            —Laura Kasischke

            "In these elegant, powerful poems, Michael White pays homage to a great painter while engaging social realities that affect us all. They are brave, beautiful poems linked by authentic vision and a sensitive, educated ear."
            2018救济金6元棋牌 —Sam Hamill


            Travels in Vermeer: A Memoir, by Michael WHiter

            Travels in Vermeer: A Memoir
            by Michael White
            2015

            from the publisher's webpage:

            In the midst of a bad divorce, the poet Michael White unexpectedly discovers the consoling power of Johannes Vermeer's radiant vision. Over the course of a year, he travels to Amsterdam, The Hague, Delft, Washington D.C., New York, and London to view twenty-four paintings, including nearly all of Vermeer's major work.

            "A certain chain of events has left me open, on a startlingly deep level, to Vermeer's gaze, to his meditation on our place on earth," White writes.

            2018救济金6元棋牌Part travelogue, part soul-searching investigation into romantic love and intimate discourse on art, this erudite and lyrical memoir encompasses the author's past—his difficult youth, stint in the Navy, alcoholism and the early death of his first wife—and ends with his finding grace and transformation through deeply affecting encounters with the paintings of Vermeer, an artist obsessed with romance and the inner life, who has captivated millions, from the seventeenth century until now.

            reviews:

            "All the sorrow of love is compressed into White's memoir. But so, too, is all the consolation of art. Nothing I've read...suggests so eloquently what [Vermeer's paintings] hold for a contemporary viewer…Figures it took a poet to get it this beautifully, thrillingly right."
            2018救济金6元棋牌 — Peter Trachtenberg

            "[Travels in Vermeer] touches on the mysteries of seduction, loss and the artistic impulse. It shows how time can be interrupted."
            2018救济金6元棋牌 —Clyde Edgerton

            "This book is a treasure and a guide. It is a type of healing for the intellect and the heart."
            —Rebecca Lee

            about the author:

            Michael White is the author of four collections of poetry and a memoir, Travels in Vermeer (Persea 2015), and has published widely in respected periodicals, including The Paris Review, The New Republic, The Kenyon Review, Ploughshares, Western Humanities Review, and the Best American Poetry2018救济金6元棋牌. White teaches poetry and is presently chair of the Creative Writing department at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington.

            Small Treasures: Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hals and Their Contemporaries
            represents the first exhibition to focus exclusively on small-format seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish figure paintings. Many of the century's greatest masters contributed to this tradition: pictures by Anthony van Dyck, Adriaen Brouwer, David Teniers, Frans Hals, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Jan Steen, Gerard ter Borch, Gerrit Dou, and Frans van Mieris are featured in the exhibition. Drawn primarily from public and private collections throughout the United States, the works in Small Treasures showcase the quality, skill and diversity these artists brought to their small miracles in paint. Viewers encounter various portrait formats and types, including group and individual portraits, self-portraits, allegorical portraits, and tronies, a Dutch word for faces or character studies. A handful of genre and history paintings are also shown in order to provide a larger context for the portraits. A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition, featuring all of the exhibited paintings reproduced in full size.

            The exhibition includes:

            Girl with a Red Hat, Johannes Vermeer

            Saint Praxedis, Johannes Vermeer (?)

            Saint Praxedis sold for $10,687,160

            The London-based auction house Christie's reported via a that the Saint Praxedis (101.6 x 82.6 cm.) was sold on Tuesday, July 8 for $10,687,160 (£6,242,500). This figure barely higher that than the auction house's lowest estimate of $10,284,000 but considerably lower than the upper estimate of $13,712,000. The painting was sold after a few bids to an Asiatic client.

            The low price paid for the Saint Praxedis suggests that the results of the scientific analysis were less than convincing and that it was bought in hopes that future critical or scientific investigations will strengthened its attribution.

            In 2004, Sotheby's sold the miniscule A Young Woman Seated at the Virginals2018救济金6元棋牌 (25.2 x 20 cm.) for $42 million (£16.2 million) a price five times greater than the auction house's initial estimate. Previous to the two sales, the authorship of both works had been for debated for decades. On occasion of the sales the picture were proposed as authentic Vermeer's largely the basis of scientific analysis spearheaded, in both cases, by the respective auction houses.

            Before the painting was sold, that after having examined the picture the conservator Libby Sheldon said that although no firm conclusion about the exact date of the picture's Vermeer signature could be reached, she believed that it is nonetheless "old." In 1998, Jørgen Wadum, then the chief curator of the Mauritshuis, stated that the signature had been added after the painting had been completed. Tests carried out by the Rijksmuseum show that the lead component of the lead white pigment extracted from the picture derives from a northern European source making it improbable that the picture was painted in southern Europe, as some critics had speculated. In addition, Christie's claims that the lead white used to paint the Saint Praxedis is from the same "batch" used to painted the Diana and her Companions, a secure work by Vermeer.

            However, since the results of these tests have not been published, for the moment it is not clear what meant by the term "batch." Many pigments used by artists, including white lead, were already being produced on a large scale with the products being delivered to the retail dealers. There exists no evidence that might indicate if Vermeer prepared his own paints or bought them through one or other commercial venues.

            Mauritshuis Opening on 27 June, 2014

            The Mauritshuis will open its doors on Friday 27 June, 2014 after a two-year renovation.

            The world famous painting collection, including three paintings by Vermeer, Girl with a Pearl Earring, View of Delft and Diana and her Companions, will once again be displayed in the fully renovated and expanded Mauritshuis. After a celebratory opening, the museum will be open to the public for visit free of charge until midnight. The renovated Mauritshuis doubles its surface with an underground expansion into a building on the other side of the street. Still, little about the character of the museum will change. The appearance and unique homely atmosphere are preserved, thanks to the design of Hans van Heeswijk architects. The most obvious change is the relocation of the main entrance to the forecourt. Visitors will descend via the stairs or lift to a light foyer, connecting 'old' and 'new' underground. The new part, the Royal Dutch Shell Wing, will house the exhibition space, the brasserie and the museum shop. Furthermore, it will accommodate the educational Art Workshop, a library, and event rooms.

            The museum has also renovated its and has added new high-resolution image is their Vermeer's paintings which can be viewed with a zoom feature or downloaded to one's hard disk. The downloadable images are lower resolution than the zoom versions.

            Saint Praxedis, Johannes Vermeer (?)

            Another new Vermeer?

            On June 6, Christie's announced that it was declaring the Saint Praxedis a Vermeer. According to , the head of Old Master paintings at Christie's, after isotope analysis tests carried out by scientists at Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum and Free University, it was found that the lead white of the painting was a precise match for that used in another early Vermeer, Diana and her Companions2018救济金6元棋牌—"So precise as to suggest that the same batch of paint could have been used." He stated that the research, including an analysis of the date and signature on the painting, amounted to "a compelling endorsement" of Vermeer's authorship. In the event that the painting is accepted by art scholars as an authentic Vermeer, it will become the second once-doubted painting in ten years to be accepted into the painter's thin oeuvre largely on the basis of technical analysis.

            2018救济金6元棋牌The auction house excepts the work could fetch about $13 million when it is auction in early July. The work is part of the collection of , a Polish-born art-lover who amassed a huge trove of art after marrying Johnson & Johnson heir J. Seward Johnson. Piasecka died last year.

            The Painting

            2018救济金6元棋牌The painting is believed to be a copy of a work by (1605–1669 ?) from about 1640–1645, now in the Collection Fergnani in Ferrara. It represents the early Roman martyr, or Praxedes, who squeezes a martyr's blood from a sponge into an ornate vessel. The most obvious difference between the copy and the original is that there is no crucifix in the Ferrara work.

            Critical Fortunes

            2018救济金6元棋牌The painting's provenance before the mid-twentieth century is unknown. The collector Jacob Reder bought it at a minor auction house in New York in 1943. The painting was first publicly viewed in 1969 when it was exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as a work by Felice Ficherelli in the exhibition Florentine Baroque Art from American Collections, no. 39. Vermeer's signature in the lower left was noted in the catalogue after it had been examined by Ted Rousseau and members of the conservation department at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

            After the work appeared in New York exhibition, it was first published (1969) as a Vermeer by Michael Kitson, an art historian with the University of London. Kitson believed the signature was integral with the paint surface and "the form of the signature corresponds exactly to those on Vermeer's early works, particularly the Girl Asleep." Kitson likened the Saint Praxedis copy to Vermeer's , for its "breadth of form and handling and a similar gravity (though not sickness) of mood."*

            In 1986, Arthur K. Wheelock Jr. enthusiastically embraced the work as an authentic Vermeer** the citing the stylistic and technical similarities with the two early Vermeers and the essentially Dutch character of the modeling of Saint Praxedis' face, which he compared to the down turned head of Vermeer's Maid Asleep. Wheelock noted two signatures. One, at the lower left was the name "Meer" and the date "1655." On the suggestion of Egbert Haverkamp-Begemann, Wheelock advanced that the other inscription contained the word "Meer," followed by the letter "N," the letter "R," then two lower case "o's." Wheelock holds that both the signatures and the date are integral to the paint surface and that the second could be interpreted as: "[Ver]Meer N[aar] R[ip] o [s] o" or "Vermeer after Riposo," Ficherelli's Italian nickname (Repose).

            However, on the occasion of the 1994–1995 Vermeer Washington/The Hague exhibition where the work was shown by Wheelock as the earliest known painting by Vermeer, its authenticity was seriously contested by a number of art historians and conservators. Jørgen Wadum, then the chief curator of the Mauritshuis, firmly stated that the "Meer 1655" inscription had been added after the painting had been completed. Contrary to Wheelock, he believed the brushwork of Saint Praxedis had nothing to do with the brushwork of either the Diana and her Companions or the Christ in the House of Mary and Martha. He also noted that no smalt, a dull blue pigment which is now obsolete, had been detected in the Saint Praxedis while both the Christ in the House of Mary and Martha and the Diana and her Companions had significant amounts of smalt.

            When Saint Praxedis was examined by , a specialist on the seventeenth-century Utrecht painter Johannes van der Meer, he was unable even to see the second inscription, and in any case, he wrote "nowhere in seventeenth-century Dutch painting will you find such an inscription on a copied painting."

            Ben Broos found that Wheelock's interpretation of the signature as "Meer naar Riposo" was "wishful thinking" at best. "In my opinion, Saint Praxedis is the latest wrongly attributed Vermeer of the caliber of Van der Laan and Vrel." Other experts such as Albert Blankert, Gregor J. M. Weber, and the National Gallery in London's Christopher Brown have arrived at similar conclusions.

            In 2002, Jon Boone wrote, "In looking at Saint Praxedis one does have a hard time understanding its attribution to Vermeer. It is a second-rate copy of a mediocre painting by an undistinguished artist, with certain features—such as the awkward wrap-around hands—antithetical to Vermeer's sensibility as well as his draftsmanship. While the face itself is beautiful, certainly more charming than that of the original, it is still a facsimile face, a close copy of the source." And further: "The Saint Praxedis attribution is severely strained, failing the standard of : The simplest explanation covering all the facts of the case is that the painting is a copy executed either by the original painter, Ficherelli, in Florence, or by another artist in Ficherelli's circle." ***

            In fact, there is no evidence that Vermeer had ever visited Italy or that the Ficherelli's original, or an eventual copy, had ever traveled outside the country.

            Ivan Gaskell had written earlier "that as a result of, first, examining the painting while exhibited in Washington (scarcely optimal conditions) in conjunction with Vermeer's two early history paintings, secondly, of discussing the work with specialist colleagues, and, thirdly, reviewing the published arguments, I feel unable to accept an unqualified attribution of Saint Praxedis to Vermeer."

            In his 2008 complete catalogue of Vermeer's painting, does not even mention the Saint Praxedis, while in 2009 he wrote "the repetition is probably by the Florentine painter [Ficherelli] himself." ****

            Holland's Golden Age in America: Collecting the Art of Rembrandt, Vermeer and Hals
            by Esmée Quodbach
            ed. New York (The Frick Collection) and University Park (The Pennsylvania State University Press)
            2014

            From the :
            Americans have long had a taste for the art and culture of Holland's Golden Age. As a result, the United States can boast extraordinary holdings of Dutch paintings. Celebrated masters such as Rembrandt van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer, and Frans Hals are exceptionally well represented, but many fine paintings by their contemporaries can be found as well. In this groundbreaking volume, fourteen noted American and Dutch scholars examine the allure of seventeenth-century Dutch painting to Americans over the past centuries. The authors of Holland's Golden Age in America explain in lively detail why and how American collectors as well as museums turned to the Dutch masters to enrich their collections. They examine the role played by Dutch settlers in colonial America and their descendants, the evolution of American appreciation of the Dutch school, the circumstances that led to the Dutch school swiftly becoming one of the most coveted national schools of painting, and, finally, the market for Dutch pictures today. Richly illustrated, this volume is an invaluable contribution to the scholarship on the collecting history of Dutch art in America, and it is certain to inspire further research.

            In addition to the editor, the contributors are Ronni Baer, Quentin Buvelot2018救济金6元棋牌, Lloyd DeWitt, Peter Hecht, Lance Humphries, Walter Liedtke, Louisa Wood Ruby, Catherine B. Scallen, Annette Stott, Peter C. Sutton, Dennis P. Weller, Arthur K. Wheelock, Jr., and Anne T. Woollett.

            This book provides answers for anyone who has ever wondered why there are so many great Dutch paintings in U.S. collections. Essays by leading curators and scholars draw on the history of art, as well as an understanding of cultural, economic and political conditions, to illuminate the American taste for seventeenth-century Dutch painting.

            Drawing on the experience and insights of many of her colleagues in museums and the academy, Esmée Quodbach brings us an impressively broad overview of the early collectors of Dutch art in America. This essential volume provides illuminating context for major figures such as J. P. Morgan and welcomes unsung heroes such as Robert Gilmor, Jr., onto this stage, but also lifts the curtain on early colonial as well as contemporary collections. These varied accounts are spiked with color, drama and highlights, including the story of the wealthy collector who has to ask, "Who is Vermeer?"

            Dutch Paintings of the Seventeenth Century

            Johannes Vermeer

            Is Vermeer's stolen Concert closer to being recovered?

            At 1:24 a.m. of March 18, 1990, two thieves stole thirteen works of art from the Italianate mansion Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, including Vermeer's mid-career masterpiece, The Concert. None of the paintings have been recovered. In the years following the theft, most of the leads went cold. Billboards announcing the a $5,000,000 reward for information about the theft and the arrest if a Boston mob leaders suspected of having information on the heist yielded nothings. Until 2013.

            On 19 March, 2013, on the 23rd anniversary of the crime, the FBI made the stunning announcement that they knew who was behind 1990 theft, but they did not supply names because the investigation was ongoing.

            On May, 2013, Robert Gentile, 76, convicted of receiving stolen goods, carrying a deadly weapon in a motor vehicle and possession of illegal firearms, was arrested. Police suspected he knew something about the heist. Gentile denied knowing anything but failed a FBI polygraph test when asked if he knew anything about the Boston heist. Moreover, a police investigation in Gentile's house turned up a handwritten list of the stolen paintings, their estimated worth and a newspaper article about the heist a day after it happened.

            And now, an FBI agent in charge of the investigation for the bureau says there are confirmed sightings of the missing artwork from credible sources. FBI Special Agent Geoff Kelly told MyFoxBoston.com, "We believe that over certain periods of time, this artwork has been spotted." Up until now, there were no official sightings of the artwork.

            Two FBI informants told law enforcement that Carmello Merlino was planning to return Rembrandt's "The Storm on the Sea of Galilee" in the 1990s, to try to collect reward money. His plans were foiled when he was arrested for an aborted armored car heist, according to MyFoxBoston.com.

            Video installation by
            35 mm celluloid

            from the film maker's website:
            Johannes Vermeer's Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window has been recreated by filmmaker Menno Otten as a continuous picturesque loop, subtly evolving around Vermeer's masterpiece. Due to its duration and inconspicuous development the installation is seen as a still at first glance, only to reveal its true form in the following moments. In an elegant symbiosis between the expressive moment and dynamic movement a timeless masterpiece comes to life.

            2018救济金6元棋牌Only in the last century have the visual arts surpassed the limitations of 'mere' suggestions of movement. And yet the time-space continuum of cinematography hasn't diminished the expressive power of the single two-dimensional image. On the contrary, the introduction of motion into the visual arts made the decisive moment—the unique concurrence of both the dramatic and the visual highlight of an event (Cartier-Bresson, 1952)—even more compelling. Movement aroused our awareness of non-movement.

            The artistic tension between movement and motionlessness is the essence of Living Paintings, an Inner Visions project in which the award-winning Dutch documentary maker and video artist Menno Otten literally sheds a new light on old master's paintings. Through video installations that recreate these icons and expose a time span that encloses their decisive moment, the paintings come to life. On the boundary of cinema and photography, the classical images enter the world of time and motion, in an attempt to unify the antithesis described by Bill Viola: "Film can embody time, something the Old Masters couldn't do."

            The National Gallery, London, is offering a fresh look at one of the most startling and fascinating artists of all—Johannes Vermeer, painter of the famous Girl with a Pearl Earring2018救济金6元棋牌. The National Gallery has chosen to focus on Vermeer's relationship with music. It is one of the most popular themes of Dutch painting and reveals an enormous amount about the sitter and the society they lived in. New research, revealed for the first time at this exhibition, shows how his technique and materials affected his works.

            Tim Marlow goes beyond the exhibition to tell the entire story of Vermeer's life—and, in doing so, shows in fabulous HD detail many other of the artist's captivating works.

            abstract:
            2018救济金6元棋牌 A special interest in optics among various seventeenth-century painters living in the Dutch city of Delft has intrigued historians, including art historians, for a long time. Equally, the impressive career of the Delft microscopist Antoni van Leeuwenhoek has been studied by many historians of science. However, it has never been investigated who, at that time, had access to the mathematical and optical knowledge necessary for the impressive achievements of these Delft practitioners. We have tried to gain insight into Delft as a 'node' of optical knowledge by following the careers of three minor local figures in early seventeenth-century Delft. We argue that through their work, products, discussions in the vernacular and exchange of skills, rather than via learned publications, these practitioners constituted a foundation on which the later scientific and artistic achievements of other Delft citizens were built. Our Delft case demonstrates that these practitioners were not simple and isolated craftsmen; rather they were crucial components in a network of scholars, savants, painters and rich virtuosi. Decades before Vermeer made his masterworks, or Van Leeuwenhoek started his famous microscopic investigations, the intellectual atmosphere and artisanal knowledge in this city centered on optical topics.

            Especially of interest is the authors' tie between three optical practitioners who lived in Delft simultaneously with Vermeer. One of them, Jacob Spoors, was in 1674 the notary of Vermeer and his mother-in-law Maria Thins. Another was an acquaintance of Spoors, the military engineer Johan van der Wyck, who made an optical device in Delft in 1654, most likely a camera obscura. A report about the demonstration in nearby The Hague has been preserved. Van der Wyck also made telescopes and microscopes and an apparatus that probably was a kind of perspective box. As a telescope maker he was preceded by Evert Harmansz Steenwyck, brother-in- law of the Leiden painter David Bailly and father of two Delft still-life painters: Harman and Pieter Steenwyck. The latter was familiar with Vermeer's father Reynier Jansz Vermeer, at a time when the young Vermeer was still living with his parents. According to the authors, this is the first real archival evidence that such a device existed in Delft during Vermeer's life.

            From Perception to Paint: the practical use of the Camera Obscura in the time of Vermeer

            From Perception to Paint: the practical use of the Camera Obscura in the time of Vermeer
            Jane Jelley
            in Art and Perception
            July 2013

            There has been much debate as to whether Vermeer himself would have used any kind of optical aid in the execution of his paintings. The paintings themselves appear to show optical effects and distortions, seen only through a lens and not with the naked eye. Was Vermeer just influenced by the view through a camera, or did he transfer the projected images directly to his paintings?

            The experiment shows a method that would have made transfers from a projection to a canvas a practical possibility, using readily available materials and contemporary technology. This technique not only solves the problems of the reversals of camera obscura images, but significantly, the resultant transfers from the lens show striking resonances with Vermeer's own underpainting, revealed by scientific analysis. This research also provides some answers about the use of particular materials in the seventeenth-century studio.

            from the National Gallery website:
            The extended loan of Vermeer's Guitar Player from Kenwood House enabled National Gallery researchers to analyze the painting's materials and closely study the techniques used. The findings were compared with other late paintings by Vermeer in the National Gallery (A Lady Seated at a Virginal and A Lady Standing at a Virginal), and a slightly earlier work (The Music Lesson) kindly lent by the Royal Collection for the National Gallery's 2013 summer exhibition Vermeer and Music: The Art of Love and Leisure.

            2018救济金6元棋牌This project presented an opportunity for close visual examination and technical imaging of these works. In addition, a small number of paint samples obtained from each of these paintings in the 1960s and archived since that time at the Doerner Institut were kindly loaned for study. Techniques for the analysis of these samples, not available in the 1960s, scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray analysis (SEM-EDX) and attenuated total reflectance—Fourier transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopy have now been undertaken. The aim has been to draw together information from current visual inspections, analytical evidence from the old paint samples, and the results of the analysis of a very small number of new samples which we have been able to take from our own paintings. The study has been directed to understanding the current condition of the paintings and how this may relate to the alteration of Vermeer's original painting materials and to conservation treatments undertaken in the past.

            Metropolitan Museum Journal, vol. 47, 2012, pp. 99–106

            2018救济金6元棋牌

            For the past several years two American scientists, C. Richard Johnson Jr. and Don H. Johnson, "have developed computer algorithms that allow an analysis of canvas weaves that is more precise than traditional methods. They have digitally mapped canvases used by European artists ranging in date from the 1450s to Vincent van Gogh's pictures of 1888–90. The results so far have been variously revealing for those artists and for Velázquez, Vermeer, Monet, Renoir, Gauguin and Matisse.
            In the case of Johannes Vermeer, twenty nine of his canvases have been digitally mapped to date, out of the thirty-six paintings by him (two of which are on wood) that are generally accepted by scholars. The two scientists discovered that "three canvas weave matches were found, with three different implications: a question of authenticity; another concerning chronology; and the hypothesis that two pictures were intended by the artist as a pair. The results of the analysis suggest that the canvas of The Lacemaker originated from the same bolt of canvas as that of the recently reattributed Young Woman Seated at a Virginal (not to be confused with the London work of Vermeer by a similar title). Another weave match found in Vermeer's oeuvre is between two genre paintings of identical size, Young Woman Standing at a Virginal and Young Woman Seated at a Virginal, both in the National Gallery, London.

            , the curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Vermeer expert, furnishes an art historical reading of the investigation.

            8 February –May 25, 2014
            Bologna, Italy ()

            press release:
            Masterpieces from the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis will be exhibited at three museums in the United States from January 2013 to January 2014. The Mauritshuis has agreed to send more than thirty works to the de Young/Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta; the tour will finish with a smaller selection at The Frick Collection in New York. Among the paintings going on tour are the famous Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer and The Goldfinch2018救济金6元棋牌 by Carel Fabritius, neither of which will have been seen by American audiences in ten years. Furthermore, this is the first occasion since the mid-1980s that a substantial group of works from the Mauritshuis has come to the United States. The decision to organize a major international traveling exhibition of a select group of paintings from the museum's rich collection was prompted by the large-scale renovations to its premises, which will be finished in 2014.

            The Guitar Player, Johannes Vermeer

            Vermeer exhibition in London

            Vermeer and Music: Love and Leisure in the Dutch Golden Age
            Sainsbury Wing, National Gallery of Art, London
            June 26–September 8, 2013

            2018救济金6元棋牌 Admission free

            This exhibition explores the concept of music as a pastime of the elite in the northern Netherlands during the seventeenth century. Vermeer and Music: Love and Leisure in the Dutch Golden Age will bring together the National Gallery's two paintings by Vermeer, A Lady Standing at a Virginal and A Lady Seated at a Virginal, The Royal Collection's Music Lesson, A Young Woman Seated at the Virginals (attributed to Johannes Vermeer) and The Guitar Player, on exceptional loan from the Iveagh Bequest, Kenwood House.

            2018救济金6元棋牌The exhibition aims to enhance viewers' appreciation of these beautiful and evocative paintings by Vermeer and his contemporaries by juxtaposing them with musical instruments and songbooks of the period. Visitors will be able to compare seventeenth-century virginals, guitars, lutes and other instruments with their painted representations to judge the accuracy of representation and what liberties the painter might have taken to enhance the visual or symbolic appeal of his work. In seventeenth-century Dutch paintings, music often figured as a metaphor for harmony, a symbol of transience or, depending on the type of music being performed, an indicator of one's education and position in society. Musical instruments and songbooks were also included as attributes in elegant portraits to suggest that the sitter was accomplished in this area.

            Tim Jenison

            Vermeer-related film

            In Tim's Vermeer2018救济金6元棋牌, , a Texas-based inventor and giant of video and post-production software for home computers, (Video Toaster, LightWave, TriCaster) attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in European art: How did the seventeenth- century Dutch master Johannes Vermeer manage to paint so realistically—150 years before the invention of photography?

            In the search of an answer, Jenison began by working off of the theories set forth in David Hockney's and Philip Steadman's 2018救济金6元棋牌, both of which allege that Vermeer employed an optical device, the camera obscura, as an aid to his painting. Fascinated by the theories of Hockney and Steadman (both outsiders to the art history enclave), Jenison built his own camera obscura but found something was amiss. He immediately came to suspect that not only had Vermeer used some sort of optical device to trace the drawing of his motif onto his canvas (as Steadman had for all practical purposes proved) but must have used it to register the colors and tonal values of his paintings which have been long admired for their uncanny precision, apparently out of reach of his contemporaries.

            While viewing in person Vermeer's Music Lesson, perhaps the artist's most "optically based" work, Jenison, a video engineer well versed in analyzing images scientifically, became firmly convinced that the work presents optical information that cannot be gathered by retinal observation. Pondering how Vermeer could have achieved such results, he invented—the idea came to him as he was relaxing in a bath tub—a simple, easy-to-use optical device, whose technology was easily within the reach of the seventeenth-century artist, and painstakingly taught himself to paint with it. The mirror of Jenison's device reflects an object in such a way that a painter can duplicate not only an object's principal contours on canvas but its precise colors and tones. Putting his theory to the ultimate test, Jenison built a perfectly scaled "set" of The Music Lesson in a San Antonio studio and "repainted" Vermeer's Music Lesson2018救济金6元棋牌 from it using the device. After various false starts, Jenison learned how to handle the device with greater efficacy, how to hand grind paint and how to domesticate paint and brush, an entirely new experience for the digital engineer. He employed seven months to complete the work, which he claims is easily accurate enough to uphold his hypothesis.

            Although Jenison admits that there is no historical evidence that proves his hypothesis, he believes that if his method for transferring form, color and tone form with a mechanical device to a canvas was used by Vermeer, a chapter of art history would have to be revised.

            2018救济金6元棋牌Jenison's friends, the illusionists and professional debunkers Penn & Teller, united with him to fully document his years- long investigation into the mysterious methods of Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer. The movie includes commentary from Jillett, Hockney and Steadman. Speaking of the film, Hockney said, "It might disturb quite a lot of people," since it forces you to question everything that you thought you knew about great art and the people responsible for it. But, as Jillette points out, "it doesn't argue that they weren't geniuses; it just shows that they were fathomable geniuses, rather than unfathomable ones."

            Girl with a Pearl Earring nad Other Treasures from the Mauritshuis, in cinema

            GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING AND OTHER TREASURES FROM THE MAURITSHUIS MUSEUM NETHERLANDS
            in cinemas from 13 January

            from Exhibition on Screen' website:
            Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer is one of the most enduring paintings in the history of art. Even today, its recent world tour garnered huge queues lining up for the briefest glimpse of its majestic beauty. In Japan 1.2 million people saw the exhibition. Yet the painting itself is surrounded in mystery. This beautifully filmed new documentary seeks to investigate the many unanswered questions associated with this extraordinary piece. Who was this girl? Why and how was it painted? Why is it so revered?

            After its world tour, the Girl with a Pearl Earring2018救济金6元棋牌 returned to the much-loved Mauritshuis in The Hague, Netherlands, which has just completed extensive renovations. Enjoying unparalleled exclusive access to this historical exhibition, the film takes the audience on a journey as it seeks to answer many of the questions surrounding this enigmatic painting and its mysterious creator, Vermeer. Using the recently completed and highly complex makeover of the museum as its starting point, the film goes on a behind the scenes detective journey to seek out the answers that lie within the other masterpieces housed in the collection.

            Vermeer's Daughter: Vermeer realted conference

            Vermeer-related conference

            Vermeer's Daughter?
            NYU Cantor Film Center, New York
            May 18, 2013 | 1:00 a.m.–6: p.m.

            In his book (Routledge in 2009), Cooper Union art history professor Benjamin Binstock proposed that four paintings by Vermeer, including the Girl with a Red Hat, might actually have been painted by his daughter, Maria, who he further identified as the model for the famous Girl with a Pearl Earring2018救济金6元棋牌. Thus far, however, Binstock's thesis has been met with silence in the art historical press—itself a fascinating response. But what if we were to take Binstock's claims seriously, or at least allow them a fair hearing? How might we go about doing so? Beyond that, what if we in turn were to think about how such theories make their way through the art historical vetting process? How generally does scholarship evaluate such claims, and in turn how ought we evaluate how it does so? And if Binstock were proven right?

            An all-day symposium will address Binstock's unorthodox theory and related questions will be held at the NYU Cantor Film Center, Saturday May 18, 2013 (11:00 a.m.–6: p.m.). The symposium will attended by:

            Vermeer's Concert

            One big step closer to recovering Vermeer's stolen Concert?

            drawn from the CNN website:

            The FBI said Monday it believes it knows who was behind one of the most significant art heists in the United States—the 1990 theft of 13 precious works, once valued at $500 million, from Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. The did not reveal the suspects' names, but know that they "are members of a criminal organization with a base in the mid-Atlantic states and New England."

            The bureau also said it believes the Vermeer's Concert2018救济金6元棋牌—including paintings by Rembrandt—was taken to Connecticut and the Philadelphia area and that the thieves unsuccessfully tried to sell some of the artwork in Philadelphia about 10 years ago. The announcement comes on the 23rd anniversary of the theft, which the FBI says is one of the largest property crimes in U.S. history.

            from the exhibition website:
            Arriving in Japan will be 107 paintings, sculptures and drawings from the collections at the National Museums of Berlin (Staatliche Museen zu Berlin2018救济金6元棋牌)—magnificent collections amassed at the museums as a national mission, after their founding in the 19th century when Berlin was the capital of the Kingdom of Prussia. The exhibition will enable viewers to compare artworks of the Italian and Northern Renaissances as they view European art of the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries.

            Included is one work that must not be missed, Young Lady with a Pearl Necklace, one of the finest of the few surviving masterpieces by Jan Vermeer van Delft, the foremost artist of seventeenth-century Dutch painting. The painting will be making its first appearance in Japan.

            Along with paintings by Rembrandt and sculptures by the master German sculptor Tilman Riemenschneider, the exhibition will also offer some 30 drawings from the Italian Renaissance—a period spanning 200 years, from 1420 to around 1600—including works by Sandro Botticelli and Michelangelo Buonarroti.

            Van Musscher

            Vermeer contemporary Michiel van Musscher commemorated at the Van Loon Museum in Amsterdam

            Michiel van Musscher: the opulence of the Golden Age
            March 9 –June 10, 2012
            2018救济金6元棋牌 Museum van Loon, Amsterdam

            While Vermeer lovers might remember Michiel Van Musscher's emulation of Vermeer's Art of Painting, perhaps only a few have given this lesser-known seventeenth-century Dutch painter the full attention he deserves. To rectify the situation, on March 9, 2012 the Museum Van Loon opened an exhibition Michiel van Musscher (1645–1705) the Wealth of the Golden Age2018救济金6元棋牌, the very first exhibition dedicated to this talented artist.

            2018救济金6元棋牌By the end of the seventeenth century, Van Musscher had become a successful portraitist. While visiting the capital in 1687, Swedish architect Nicodemus Tessin deemed him the very best Amsterdam painter for small portraits. He is noted for having portrayed the exuberant lifestyle of the Dutch elite and the wealth of the Golden Age with great pictorial quality and richness in detail. His portraits are painted in the tradition of Netscher and Van Mieris although it is clear that he had seen and drawn inspiration from Vermeer as well for a few of his own compositions. Among his sitters was Tsar Peter the Great.

            2018救济金6元棋牌The exhibition counts not only his more famous paintings from Dutch collections and the Van Loon Museum itself, but also a significant number of paintings from private collections and international museums. The exhibition is a tribute to the work of Van Musscher and visualizes the latter days of the Dutch Golden Age.

            The Rijksmuseum has updated their hi-res image of the Woman in Blue Reading a Letter after its recent restoration. At first sight it looks a bit disjointed as pictures always do after restoration. The whole much cooler in hue now the long winding scarf-like piece of cloth on the table, once fairly muddled, can be made out a bit better recalling a similar scarf-like object that drapes down in The Art of Painting. The figure has gained much force and now stands out of the picture more than it did before the dark, yellow varnish was removed. The painting now appears to have greater spatial resonance and sense of volume.

            2018救济金6元棋牌Some color can be made out in the map as well as a few topographical features which had been overpainted. A row of discreet brass buttons with tiny highlights now run along the side of the foreground chair which had been completely obscured by retouches.

            On loan from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., Vermeer's Woman Holding a Balance2018救济金6元棋牌 will take center stage in a tightly focused exhibition, flanked by two similarly intimate scenes painted by Gerrit ter Borch and Pieter de Hooch, two of Vermeer's contemporaries and stars of the DIA's Dutch collection.

            Google has added seven new , bringing the total works of this master to fourteen. The Art of Painting is quite good in color but at maximum magnifications it is notably out of focus. The Music Lesson is more or less a disaster: it is overexposed, rotated slightly to the right and not even all that large. The Young Woman with a Water Pitcher is the same image already available on the Metropolitan website. The two Dresden paintings, for some reason, are both very poor in color and out of focus. The Christ in the House of Martha and Mary is only acceptable. That leaves the Washington Woman Holding a Balance and the Lady Writing, both which are in focus and perfectly registered in color, useful for the scholar and first-tier Vermeer admirer alike.

            Where Darkness Meets Light...Rembrandt & his Contemporaries
            Sakip Sabanci Museum in Istanbul
            February 21–June 10, 2012

            from artdaily.com:
            For the first time, the Rijksmuseum is organizing an exhibition on the Dutch Golden Age in Turkey, including five paintings by Rembrandt and Love Letter by Vermeer. Over 100 masterpieces from the Rijksmuseum collection will be on display in Sakip Sabanci Museum in Istanbul from 21 February to 10 June, 2012. The exhibition is part of the festivities marking 400 years of diplomatic relations between Turkey and the Netherlands.

            The exhibition showcases the rich and varied nature of seventeenth-century Dutch art and history, telling the story of the power and majesty of the young Dutch Republic in the Golden Age through a selection of 111 paintings, drawings, prints and applied art in the form of carpets, ceramics, silverware and glassware. The exhibits include landscapes by Jan van Goyen, Jacob van Ruisdael and Aelbert Cuyp, still lifes by Pieter Claesz and Adriaen Coorte, genre pieces by Gerrit ter Borch, Gabriël Metsu and Pieter de Hooch, and jocular scenes by Jan Steen and Adriaen van Ostade. Two portraits by Frans Hals will also be on display, alongside several cityscapes by Gerrit Berckheyde and two pen paintings by Willem van de Velde de Oude.

            The highlights of the exhibition are The Love Letter (1669–1670) by Johannes Vermeer and no fewer than five paintings by Rembrandt van Rijn: (1634), (c. 1639) and (1645–1647), The music lesson (1626) and Joseph recounting his dreams (1633).

            Light Structure - The Light in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer
            Museum Hessen Kassel, Kassel, Germany
            November 28, 2011– February 26, 2012

            Seventy superb works from the Baroque age of painting will be displayed in the upcoming exhibition Light structure: The light in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer, in William Castle Museum in Kassel. The exhibition will address one of the most notable aspects of European painting: the translation of light in painting. Attempts on the part of painters to render the myriad effects of light with paint were paralleled by intense scientific research on light.

            In cooperation with the Berlin research group Historical light structure the exhibition examines the different aspects of light painting in the seventeenth century on the basis of paintings, graphics and optical devices, also in view of the contemporary scientific treatises. The starting point is the art of the fifteenth and 16 Century and the fundamental innovations of Caravaggio.

            With the closure of the Kenwood House for urgent restoration in 2012, the museum was posed with the dilemma of what to do with their masterpieces. The Kenwood has just announced that Vermeer's Guitar Player2018救济金6元棋牌 will be displayed at the National Gallery in London. The exquisite work, never before relined, will also be examined by the National Gallery's conservation department. Keeping it in storage was ruled out because it was the most costly alternative.

            The "Newest" Vermeer—How Technical Research Convinced the Doubting Scholars

            February 29, 2012 | 6.30 p.m.

            from the press release:
            The only painting by Vermeer in private ownership, the tiny A Young Woman Seated at the Virginal has been on display in the UK for the first time since it was sold in 2004, first at the Fitzwilliam and . Ten years previously it was believed by many to be a nineteenth-century pastiche or a twentieth-century fake. It proved relatively unproblematic to show it was earlier, but even if it was of a contemporary date, why should it be by Vermeer?

            The talk will explain the research trail followed by Libby Sheldon, Catherine Hassall and Nicola Costaras, (and help from many other colleagues in the UK and abroad) to find the author of the painting, and presents the compelling technical evidence unearthed that led to its final attribution. It came to them in a Jiffy bag and left for the final time in a specially-made box and two bodyguards. What had made the difference?

            2018救济金6元棋牌Libby Sheldon is a paint analyst/historian and a lecturer at UCL. She has made in-depth studies of the techniques of Vermeer and the Pre-Raphaelites, has been closely involved in the Making Art in Tudor Britain project and is starting a research project on Aelbert Cuyp. Her main research interest is the historic employment of pigments.

            Vermeer's Women: Secrets and Silence
            by Marjorie E. Wieseman, Mr. Wayne Franits & H. Perry Chapman
            224 pages, Yale University Press
            2011

            product description:

            Focusing on the extraordinary Lacemaker from the Musée du Louvre, this beautiful book investigates the subtle and enigmatic paintings by Johannes Vermeer that celebrate the intimacy of the Dutch household. Moments frozen in paint that reveal young women sewing, reading or playing musical instruments, captured in Vermeer's uniquely luminous style, recreate a silent and often mysterious domestic realm, closed to the outside world, and inhabited almost exclusively by women and children.

            Three internationally recognized experts in the field explain why women engaged in mundane domestic tasks, or in pleasurable pastimes such as music making, writing letters, or adjusting their toilette, comprise some of the most popular Dutch paintings of the seventeenth century. Among the most intriguing of these compositions are those that consciously avoid any engagement with the viewer. Rather than acknowledging our presence, figures avert their gazes or turn their backs upon us; they stare moodily into space or focus intently on the activities at hand. In viewing these paintings, we have the impression that we have stumbled upon a private world kept hidden from casual regard.

            Museum Hessen Kassel
            November 12, 2011– February 26, 2012

            Seventy superb works from the Baroque age of painting will be displayed in the upcoming exhibition Light structure: The Light in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer, in William Castle Museum in Kassel. The exhibition will address one of the most notable aspects of European painting: the translation of light in painting. Attempts on the part of painters to render the myriad effects of light with paint were paralleled by intense scientific research on light.

            In cooperation with the Berlin research group Historical Light Structure () the exhibition examines the different aspects of light painting in the seventeenth century on the basis of paintings, graphics and optical devices, also in view of the contemporary scientific treatises. The starting point is the art of the fifteenth and 16th century and the fundamental innovations of Caravaggio. North of the Alps have been taken including those of Utrecht artists like Gerard van Honthorst and developed.

            Different areas of the exhibition are dedicated to the particular diversity and range of Dutch paintings of light, including day light, nocturnal landscapes, interior and portrait paintings. Vermeer's Girl with a Glass of Wine2018救济金6元棋牌 will be one of the principal works of the exhibition.

            Arthur K. Wheelock Jr. and Danielle H.A.C. Lokin
            Scala Publishers Ltd
            2011

            This book focuses on the many forms of communication that existed in seventeenth-century Dutch society between family members, lovers and professional acquaintances, both present and absent. The forty-four carefully selected Dutch genre paintings include major works by many of the finest masters of the period, including Johannes Vermeer, Pieter de Hooch, Gerrit ter Borch and Gabriel Metsu. Vermeer's three masterpieces about love letters form the core of the exhibition as they are profound examples of the power of communication. Dutch artists of the seventeenth century portrayed the wide range of emotions elicited by the various forms of communication, not only in the manner in which they render gestures and facial expressions of personal interactions, but also in the ways in which they show men and women responding to the written word. The painters often introduced objects from daily life that had symbolic implications, among them musical instruments, to enrich the pictorial narratives of their scenes. Published in conjunction with the exhibition Communication: Visualizing the Human Connection in the Age of Vermeer 2018救济金6元棋牌(2011–2012), which celebrates the 400th anniversary of the diplomatic exchanges between Japan and the Netherlands, this book connects the pictorial and the literary aspects of Dutch cultural traditions during the Golden Age.

            drawn from the Norton Simon website:

            In this lecture, held in conjunction with the loan of Vermeer's Woman with a Lute from the Metropolitan Museum, Walter Liedtke, will focus on the diverse women in Vermeer's paintings and considers what they meant to the artist, as subjects in Dutch art and society, and as reflections of his distinctive approach to visual experience. It could be said that Vermeer engaged in an intellectual (although strongly felt) voyeurism, since many of his women are idealized objects of male desire, enthralling but beyond reach. The theme was well suited to Vermeer's style, which defined intimate spaces in mostly optical terms. The viewer is unable to enter the space or touch the objects, but he—and a man is surely assumed—can also not escape the hypnotic vision. Held in the Theater.

            With the arrest Wednesday of notorious Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger, many in the art world are now asking: Could it provide a break in the greatest art heist in American history which included Vermeer's Concert? Rumors have long swirled that Bulger, the head of the city's powerful Irish-American mob at the time, may have played a role—or must have known who did. Some have speculated that he stashed the stolen masterpieces away to use as a "get-out-of-jail-free card" if he was ever caught. Others think he sent the paintings to allies in the Irish Republican Army to use as a bargaining chip. The Gardner Museum had no comment Thursday on the arrest other than a Tweet saying, "Until a recovery is made, our work continues." Many who have studied the case are similarly skeptical about Bulger's direct involvement. Last year, investigators in the Gardner case said there was no evidence in the mountains of wiretaps and other records to link Bulger to the crime.

            Heirs' Claim for Hitler's Vermeer Painting Is Rejected by Austrian Panel

            2018救济金6元棋牌An Austrian panel has rejected a claim for a Vermeer painting by the heirs of a man who sold it to Adolf Hitler, saying there was no evidence the sale was forced or that the seller was persecuted. Austria's art restitution panel threw out the argument by the heirs of Jaromir Czernin that Hitler's acquisition amounted to a "sale under duress" and should be nullified. The panel instead recommended that Austria keeps the painting. "There is no reason to assume that the sale of 'The Art of Painting' by Jaromir Czernin to Adolf Hitler was an invalid transaction," the panel said in a statement on its website.

            from the museum website:

            At the beginning of the 19th century, the first king of Bavaria, Max I Joseph (1756–1825), amassed a private art collection of the highest quality. He focused almost exclusively on seventeenth-century Dutch masters, mostly landscapes and genre paintings. To these he added the works of contemporary painters in Munich who were inspired by such Old Masters. In December 1826, the private royal collection was sold at auction. Some exceptional works were acquired for the state collections; others found their way to the Alte Pinakothek via roundabout routes—as part of Ludwig I's collection, for example; many are now scattered far afield. From today's point of view, the greatest loss is a masterpiece by Johannes Vermeer: Woman Holding a Balance of 1664. This exquisite work is returning to Munich from the National Gallery of Art in Washington for a three-month period. Surrounded by other exceptional paintings from the "Golden Age" – including works by Jacob van Ruisdael, Willem van de Velde the Younger and Philips Wouwerman—it gives visitors the opportunity to discover Max I Joseph of Bavaria as a collector of Old Masters.

            The exhibition catalogue, with informative text and fine reproductions, delves into the three paintings from the beginning of Vermeer's artistic career: the Mauritshuis' Diana and her nymphs of c. 1653–1654, the Christ in the House of Martha and Mary (c. 1654–1656) and the National Gallery of Scotland in Edinburgh, and The Procuress (1656) from the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen in Dresden.

            January 25 –April 5, 2010

            The Art of Painting2018救济金6元棋牌 has a unique place in Vermeer's oeuvre. Although it was very likely not executed as a commission, it never left the artist's studio. Even after Vermeer's death, which left his family with enormous financial problems, his widow Catharina tried to prevent a sale of this precious painting. Most likely, it was made as a showcase piece to be presented to connoisseurs and potential customers. The exhibition investigates a number of facets of this most complex of Vermeer's compositions.

            Besides extensive technological studies regarding the work's state of conservation, several central subjects are faced including the complex iconography supported by period documentation. Some of the props in the picture will be on display; a period chandelier, tapestry, wallmap as well as a precise reconstruction of a slashed doublet worn by the painter.

            Other questions are investigated as well. Does the painting represent Vermeer's real studio? What does the painting reveal about Vermeer's working methods? Which pigments did painter utilized? How was the composition developed? Did the painter make use of optical devices?

            Numerous loans from European and American museums and private collections and historical documents from Dutch archives provide a springboard for discovering Vermeer's masterpiece.

            In addition the displays paintings, sculptures and details of films by contemporary artists (George Deem, Maria Lassnig, Peter Greenaway etc.) whose creation were inspired by Vermeer's Art of Painting.

            What does the global social network Facebook have to do with Vermeer? At first glance very little. Take a look at many of the art institutions' Facebook2018救济金6元棋牌 pages that tend to be one-way monologues with insignificant interaction. People's comments really don't seem to matter.

            2018救济金6元棋牌And yet the chance to bring the Vermeer community a bit closer might be worth a try. I have found Facebook surprisingly efficient for diffusing news rapidly and opening lines of quick, two-way communication.

            So what can you do? Have a look, leave a comment and keep on coming I'll keep on plugging away for a year or so—the time necessary to evaluate any web initiative—and see if a marriage between social networking and art history makes any sense.

            2010

            Jan Vermeer van Delft had a formative influence over our ideas of the Dutch Golden Age. Yet during his lifetime there were few indications of his later fame. His incomparable genre scenes came to typify his work. Nils Büttner's concise and lively introduction traces the painter's life, presents his work in its historical and social context and explains the pictures' symbolism, still often regarded as mysterious.

            Vermeer lecture

            VERMEER, LAIRESSE AND COMPOSITION
            lecture by Paul Taylor
            Auditorium of the National Library complex, 5 Prins Willem Alexanderhof, The Hague
            March 5, 20102018救济金6元棋牌 | 4:00 p.m.

            (RKD) aims to spotlight art historians who have conducted pioneering research on Dutch art. The first lecture, entitled Vermeer, Lairesse and Composition, will be given by Dr Paul Taylor, deputy curator of the Photographic Collection at the Warburg Institute in London and a specialist in Dutch seventeenth- and eighteenth-century art and art theory. The text of the Hofstede de Groot Lecture will be published as the first volume in a new series of publications (Waanders Publishers).

            Paul Taylor has distinguished himself with his investigation of several key Dutch painting concepts, such as houding, gloe and 'lakheid, on which he has published various scholarly articles: "The Concept of 'Houding' in Dutch Art Theory" (1992); "The Glow in Late Sixteenth and Seventeenth Century Dutch Paintings" (1998); "Flatness in Dutch Art: Theory and Practice"(2008). By thoroughly analyzing these terms, searching for comparable terms in Italian and French writings, and linking them with pictorial aspects of Dutch seventeenth-century painting and drawing, he has singled out in a remarkably original fashion several pictorial qualities that are characteristic of Dutch visual art in the Golden Age.

            The Hofstede de Groot Lecture2018救济金6元棋牌 is named after the art historian Cornelis Hofstede de Groot (1863–1930), whose extensive art-historical documentation forms the basis of the RKD collection.

            The Hofstede de Groot Lecture 2018救济金6元棋牌will be followed by a reception.

            date: Friday, 5 March, 2010

            Vermeer's Woman in Blue Reading a Letter to be restored

            Vermeer painting restored

            Vermeer's Woman in Blue Reading a Letter to be restored

            The Rijksmuseum has just announced that as a part of Vermeer's Woman in Blue Reading a Letter will be thoroughly restored.

            Other than Vermeer's masterwork, other pieces will restored and ready for the 2013 reopening of the Rijksmuseum. They include Six burial figures from the T'ang Dynasty, a mahogany period room from 1748 called The Beuning room, and the Silver table ornament by Jamnitzer which is one of the absolute highlights of the museum's collection of European silversmither.

            from the Rijksmuseum website:

            As it is flanked in the exhibition room by Vermeer's two other masterpieces, The Milkmaid and The Little Street, it is even more noticeable that Woman in Blue Reading a Letter2018救济金6元棋牌 is in distinct need of restoration. The coat of varnish has turned yellow, the blue is worn, the uneven layer of paint is peppered with minor irregularities, the retouches have faded, etc. Precisely that which is so appealing in Vermeer's paintings—i.e. the bright color and the incidence of light—is now hidden behind an irregular yellowed layer of varnish.

            2018救济金6元棋牌

            The Frick Library has provided an invaluable internet interface with the database compiled Montias during his studies. from the Frick website:

            The Montias database, compiled by late Yale University Professor John Michael Montias, contains information from 1,280 inventories of goods (paintings, prints, sculpture, furniture, etc.) owned by people living in seventeenth century Amsterdam. Drawn from the Gemeentearchief (now known as the Stadsarchief), the actual dates of the inventories range from 1597–1681. Nearly half of the inventories were made by the Orphan Chamber for auction purposes, while almost as many were notorial death inventories for estate purposes. The remainder were bankruptcy inventories. The database includes detailed information on the 51,071 individual works of art listed in the inventories. Searches may be performed on specific artists, types of objects (painting, prints, drawings), subject matter etc. There is also extensive information on the owners, as well as on buyers and prices paid when the goods were actually in a sale. While not a complete record of all inventories in Amsterdam during this time period, the database contains a wealth of information that can elucidate patterns of buying, selling, inventorying and collecting art in Holland during the Dutch Golden Age.

            February 1–May 3, 2009

            from the NGA website:
            In the seventeenth century, a new genre of painting—the cityscape—emerged, fostered by the booming economy of the Dutch Republic and its affluent urbanites. Images of towns and cities became expressions of enormous civic pride. This exhibition of some 48 paintings, as well as 23 maps, atlases, illustrated books, and prints, offers a comprehensive survey of the Dutch cityscape, from wide-angle panoramas depicting the urban skyline with its fortifications, windmills and church steeples, to renderings of daily life along canals, in city streets, and in town squares. Joining Jacob van Ruisdael's celebrated Haarlem with the Bleaching Fields (c. 1670–1675) are works by some 40 Dutch masters. Primarily active in Amsterdam, Delft and Haarlem, these artists include Gerrit Berckheyde, Aelbert Cuyp, Jan van Goyen, Jan van der Heyden, Pieter de Hooch, Hendrick Vroom, Pieter Saenredam, and Jan Steen.

            The exhibition coincides with the 400th anniversary of the Dutch exploration and settlement of the Hudson River Valley.

            from the Metropolitan Museum of Art website:

            Between 1887 and 1917, thirteen paintings by Johannes Vermeer and several works wrongly attributed to him entered American collections. Continuing demand for Vermeer's rare pictures (36 are known today) created a niche market for forgers during the 1920s and 1930s, of whom the most gifted and notorious was the Dutch artist Han van Meegeren, who was active as a forger throughout most of the inter-war period. Metropolitan Museum curator Walter Liedtke (author of a n6ew monograph on Vermeer) and independent scholar (author of a new biography of Van Meegeren) consider the difference between a Vermeer of about 1660 and one of about 1925.

            Vermeer: The Complete Paintings
            2008

            Since his rediscovery in the later half of the 19th century, Johannes Vermeer (1632–1675) has been one of the most admired and influential European painters. His extremely private life, his supposed use of a camera obscura, and the fact that his teacher remains unidentified have, until recently, encouraged a view of the "Sphinx of Delft" as an isolated genius shrouded in an air of mystery. Walter Liedtke's new monograph reveals Vermeer's life to be well-documented and places his work in the context of the Delft school and of Delft society as a whole. Vermeer's many admirers will relish Liedtke's exploration of subtleties of meaning and refinements of technique and style. Alongside the most historical approach to Vermeer to date, the annotated color catalogue of Vermeer's complete paintings reveals a master whose rare sensibility may be described but not explained.

            Walter Liedtke is Curator of European Paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. He has written widely on Dutch painting and the Delft school and is the author of fundamental texts including Vermeer and the Delft School (2001).

            The Man Who Made Vermeers: Unvarnishing the Legend of Master Forger Han van Meegeren, Jonathan Lopez

            Book on Van Meegeren

            Best remembered for selling a fake Vermeer to Hermann Goering during the Second World War, Han van Meegeren never admitted to creating any fakes dating from before 1937—but there have always been rumors suggesting that his career actually began much earlier than that. Drawing upon three years of archival research conducted in five nations and interviews with the descendants of Van Meegeren's partners in crime, Jonathan Lopez reveals that Van Meegeren worked virtually his entire adult life turning out bogus old masters for a ring of art-world intriguers operating out of London and Berlin. Major dealers like Sir Joseph Duveen were stung by these forgeries, as was the great Pittsburgh banker Andrew Mellon, who bought two of Van Meegeren's fake Vermeers during the 1920s. As Koen Kleijn of De Groene Amsterdammer has remarked, "The Man Who Made Vermeers shatters the popular image of Han van Meegeren as a lone gunman or picaresque rogue. Jonathan Lopez reveals the master forger as an arch-opportunist, a cunning liar, and a fervent sympathizer of the fascist cause from as early as 1928. Deftly reconstructing an insidious network of illicit trade in the art market's underworld, Lopez allows few reputations to emerge unscathed in this gripping and delicious book."

            about the author:
            JONATHAN LOPEZ's writings on art and history appear frequently in Apollo: The International Magazine of Art and Antiques, published in London. The Man Who Made Vermeers grew out of an article that originally appeared in Dutch in De Groene Amsterdammer. Lopez lives with his wife, an art historian and critic, in Manhattan.

            Vermeer's Family Secrets, Benjamin Binstock

            New book on Vermeer

            Johannes Vermeer, one of the greatest Dutch painters and for some the single greatest painter of all, produced a remarkably small corpus of work. In Vermeer's Family Secrets, Benjamin Binstock revolutionizes how we think about Vermeer's work and life. Vermeer, "the Sphinx of Delft," is famously a mystery in art: despite the common claim that little is known of his biography, there is in fact an abundance of fascinating information about Vermeer's life that Binstock brings to bear on Vermeer's art for the first time; he also offers new interpretations of several key documents pertaining to Vermeer that have been misunderstood. Lavishly illustrated with more than 180 black and white images and more than sixty color plates, the book also includes a remarkable color gatefold spread that presents the entirety of Vermeer's oeuvre arranged in chronological order in 1/20 scale, demonstrating his gradual formal and conceptual development. No book on Vermeer has ever done this kind of visual comparison of his complete output. Like Poe's purloined letter, Vermeer's secrets are sometimes out in the open where everyone can see them. Benjamin Binstock shows us where to look. Piecing together evidence, the tools of art history, and his own intuitive skills, he gives us for the first time a history of Vermeer's work in light of Vermeer's life.

            On almost every page of Vermeer's Family Secrets, there is a perception or an adjustment that rethinks what we know about Vermeer, his oeuvre, Dutch painting, and Western Art. Perhaps the most arresting revelation of Vermeer's Family Secrets is the final one: In response to inconsistencies in technique, materials and artistic level, Binstock posits that several of the paintings accepted as canonical works by Vermeer, are in fact not by Vermeer at all but by his eldest daughter, Maria. How he argues this is one of the book's many pleasures.

            Vermeer Center reopens, Delft

            Although the newly-built Vermeer Center of Delft was quickly overcome by economic woes, it now seems destined to reopen. On the evening of 11th December, when the citizens of Delft gather in Market Place for the traditional Lichtjesavond ("Lights' evening") the Center will open free of charge to Delft citizens.
            From January 2008 it will be opened to the public.

            The center offers a valid educational starting point for the thousands visitors who flock to Vermeer's native city which, in fact, has not a single original painting by the native artist.

            Vermeer's Hat: The Seventeenth Century and the Dawn of the Global World, Timothy Brook

            New Vermeer-related book

            In this impressive and informative work, the artist's origins and home environment are revealed and his paintings are displayed and discussed within the context of time alongside a history of the influences and repercussions of this master's art.

            This lavishly illustrated and beautifully bound edition includes reproductions of all of Vermeer's paintings, many of the works of his contemporaries, and documents relating to his life and city, Delft.

            In the hands of an award-winning historian, Vermeer's dazzling paintings become windows that reveal how daily life and thought—from Delft to Beijing—were transformed in the seventeenth century, when the world first became global.

            "Vermeer's Hat is a deftly eclectic book, in which Timothy Brook uses details drawn from the great painter's work as a series of entry points to the widest circles of world trade and cultural exchange in the seventeenth century. From the epicenter of Delft, Brook takes his readers on a journey that encompasses Chinese porcelain and beaver pelts, global temperatures and firearms, shipwrecked sailors and their companions, silver mines and Manila galleons. It is a book full of surprising pleasures."- Jonathan Spence, author of The Death of Woman Wang, In Search of Modern China and The Memory Palace of Mateo Ricci

            Vermeer's Light: Poems 1996-2006, George Bowering

            Poems on Vermeer

            2018救济金6元棋牌Canada's first poet laureate, Bowering is both highly skilled in the formal aspects of poetry and perfectly accessible to the average reader. He is one of those old-school poets whose command of meter makes its employment seem effortless. Although some of his poems are in familiar forms and such self-invented nonce forms as those of the alphabet poems that make up part of this collection, his strong formal sense shines through even in free-verse poems, which never drag or digress but move with unrelenting, though not relentless, certainty. As for the accessibility, he doesn't bow to the fashion of substituting self-disclosure for self-awareness, and his poems are not so private as to be hermetic. In them we follow the recent life events of a man widowed after decades of marriage who finds new love and companionship, who mourns the deaths of friends and colleagues, and who finds life still rich and rewarding in its winter season. A delightful collection that may inspire readers to seek out Bowering's earlier work.

            In His Milieu: Essays on Netherlandish Art in Memory of John Michael Montias

            New Vermeer-related book

            2018救济金6元棋牌Collected in memory of the Vermeer scholar and Yale economist J. Michael Montias, these essays take into account the latest trends in the field and provide new data on a wide range of topics in Netherlandish art. Themes include the reception of paintings and architecture; art collecting as interpreted through inventories and other documents that reveal modes of display; relationships between patrons and painters; recently found or attributed works of art; artists as teachers; and the art market. Taken together, these focused studies offer fresh perspectives on the historical appreciation and evaluation of art. Drawing upon J.M. Montias' contribution to art history, these 32 essays present new analyses, attributions and documents on Netherlandish art and material culture—including the work of Vermeer, Rubens, Rembrandt, van Eyck and others—by internationally known scholars of art history and the economics of art.

            Of particular interest are those essays directly related to Vermeer:

            Faith, Donald Eaton

            New Vermeer-related novel

            In April of 1653 Joannis Vermeer married Catharina Bolnes. He was twenty and she, just twenty-one. Their marriage was opposed by her mother and the Catholic church. Vermeer was in the final year of his long apprenticeship and his ideas about art and its meaning were just forming. FAITH is the story of three winter months before that marriage—the most important months of his short life.

            author's statement:
            The novel, FAITH, started out as a puzzle and grew into something far more comprehensive and profound. My original idea was to write about Vermeer's wife, Catharina and her efforts to regain the painting, The Allegory of Art2018救济金6元棋牌, after his untimely death. To do this, I knew I would have to go back to the beginning and explain how a Protestant innkeeper's son could meet, love and marry the daughter of a wealthy Catholic woman. Nothing at all is known about these events except that they actually happened. That was the first puzzle. In order to solve it, I would have to connect the young artist to his world: Delft in Holland's remarkable Golden Age. This led to further puzzles: With whom did he study? Who influenced him? Where did he paint? The list goes on and I was determined to solve these questions in an accurate and probable way. Apart from building a small but comprehensive Vermeer library and spending countless hours on the web, I traveled to Delft (exactly one year ago this month) and walked his streets and 'felt' his presence. These impressions, I trust, are captured in the novel.

            However, FAITH is not a mere finger exercise in Art History or biography. The people involved in this story were artists, collectors, patrons, agents for powerful corporations, merchants, soldiers and priests, all driven by their personal passions and the heady power of their time. That world and those people form the background for FAITH, but it is a genuine and challenging love story that is at the center of it, as it should be.

            In the end, I feel that I succeeded in exploring that world, but at a cost. One novel could not hold it all and do justice to it. FAITH would have to be the first in a series and I knew that I could write them. So, as it turns out, FAITH covers not 'years' in Vermeer's life but only two and a half winter months at the end of 1652. Still, as a single novel, it is complete and all of the elements mentioned above are explored in it. The second novel in the series, FIRE, will cover his marriage, entry into the Guild of Saint Luke, several early paintings including Saint Praxedis and the death of Carel Fabritius. If I live long enough, the other five: LIGHT, IMAGE, DARK, SILENCE and LOSS2018救济金6元棋牌 might also get written. One can only hope.

            Painted light: the still life paintings of Willem Kalf

            from the website of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen:
            2018救济金6元棋牌 Willem Kalf may be the most important painter of still life pictures of the Golden Age. But, oddly enough, he is not that well-known. Kalf was born in 1619 in Rotterdam, and left for Paris at a young age. There, he painted interiors of barns, a theme typical of Rotterdam, which made him famous in Paris. After his return, in 1651, he married a wealthy and literary gifted lady in Hoorn. After which he lived in Amsterdam until his death in 1693.

            Here, he painted still life pictures of very valuable objects, that sparkled against a dark background. It is as if the silver goblets and platters, the flashing Venetian glasses and expensive Chinese plates want to enchant the viewer with their mysterious splendor. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen presents Willem Kalf for the first time with thirty paintings, mainly from foreign museums.

            BRAND! JAN VAN DER HEYDEN, SCHILDER EN UITVINDER (JAN VAN DER HEYDEN- 1637–1712)
            Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
            February 2, 2007–April 2007

            curator:
            Peter C. Sutton, executive director of the Bruce Museum

            2018救济金6元棋牌In 2007 the Rijksmuseum presents the first monographic exhibition on Jan van der Heyden in the Netherlands since 1937. Van der Heyden was one of the leading seventeenth-century painters of Dutch cityscapes. He was also fascinated by firefighting and is still remembered to this day by many as the inventor of the fire hose. The Rijksmuseum exhibition focuses on the diversity of Van der Heyden, who became known as the Dutch Leonardo da Vinci. The first part features a selection of sixteen of his finest paintings, on loan from various museums and private collections in Europe and the United States. The second part concentrates on his dramatic sketches and prints of fires in the city. In addition, his famous book on firefighting, published in 1690, is displayed, alongside an early example of his fire hose.

            Eye for detail
            2018救济金6元棋牌 Jan van der Heyden (Gorinchem 1637–1712 Amsterdam) was one of the leading pioneers of Dutch cityscape painting in the seventeenth century. His depictions of canals, churches, public squares, castles and courtyards reveal a remarkable eye for detail. He used sharp color, with subtle nuances of tone and atmosphere to portray these scenes, often creating striking perspective constructions.

            Idealized cityscapes
            Van der Heyden's paintings were already famous in his own day for their wealth of detail. Despite the apparent natural effect of the depiction, for which he developed innovative techniques, topographical accuracy was not Van der Heyden's primary concern. He often took buildings out of their original setting and placed them in an entirely new context. A composition had above all to convey the atmosphere of the location. As the inventor of the architectural capriccio, a depiction of a fictional location, Van der Heyden was a major precursor of eighteenth-century Italian vedute2018救济金6元棋牌 artists such as the Venetian Canaletto and Bernardo Bellotto.

            Besides cityscapes of Amsterdam and the Rhineland, Van der Heyden also painted landscapes and several still lifes, some of which are shown in the exhibition.

            2018救济金6元棋牌Which materials and techniques did Johannes Vermeer use to create his masterpieces? Is it still possible to emulate those methods today? Contemporary American painter Jonathan Janson offers straightforward, practical advice on how to reproduce Vermeer's day-to-day working procedures as closely as possible in your own studio. Detailed explanations document each and every step, from the stretching of the canvas to the three-step method used by Vermeer and his contemporaries including indispensable historical and theoretical background regarding the art and craft of Northern seventeenth-century painters.

            In the first part, Vermeer's palette, drawing, pigments, brushwork, mediums, glazing, grounds are thoroughly analyzed as they are gradually encountered during the painting process The second part contains insights into crucial stylistic components which, together, make a Vermeer a Vermeer, such as color, composition, camera obscura vision and perspective.

            Exhibition of the greatest seventeenth-century Dutch landscape painter

            JACOB VAN RUISDAEL: MASTER OF LANDSCAPE
            Royal Academy, Piccadilly, London
            until 4 June, 2006

            from the museum's website:
            Jacob van Ruisdael was one of the greatest painters of the Golden Age of Dutch painting. He was born into abject poverty in 1628 or 1629 and much of his life is shrouded in mystery. Raised in Haarlem he moved to Amsterdam and died there in 1682. In the course of his life Ruisdael broke with many of the traditions of Dutch painting and became a figure of great influence. He is celebrated for faithfully recording nature while responding to it imaginatively. His works are also considered to be fine meditations on human experience in a world shaped by constant cycles of growth and decay.

            Ruisdael's impact can be seen in the Barbizon School of France, the American Hudson River School, and in the work of John Constable, England's own leading landscape painter. To coincide with this exhibition the John Madejski Fine Rooms have been hung with a selection of landscape paintings from the Royal Academy's Permanent Collection. These works can be seen free of charge during Jacob van Ruisdael: Master of Landscape.

            2018救济金6元棋牌This exhibition has been jointly organized by the Royal Academy of Arts, London, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

            Enchanting The Eye: Dutch Paintings Of The Golden Age, RObert H. Huerta2018救济金6元棋牌

            Exhibit on of Vermeer's contemporary Frans van Mieris


            by Robert H. Huerta
            20052018救济金6元棋牌

            2018救济金6元棋牌In a study that sweeps from Classical Antiquity to the seventeenth century, Robert D. Huerta explores the common intellectual threads that link the art of Johannes Vermeer to the philosophy of Plato. Examining the work of luminaries such as Plotinus, Nicholas of Cusa, Saint Augustine, Ficino, Raphael, Keller, Galileo, Descartes and Hoydens, Huerta argues that the concurrence of idealism and naturalism in Vermeer's art reflects the Dutch master's assimilation of Platonic and classical ideals, concepts that were part of the Renaissance revival of classical thought. Pursuing a Platonic path, Vermeer used his paintings as a visual dialectic, as part of his program to create a physical instantiation of the Ideal. Illustrated. Robert D. Huerta is an independent historian, focusing on the intersection between art and science during the early modern period.

            Exhibit on of Vermeer's contemporary Frans van Mieris

            FRANS VAN MIERIS (1635–1681)
            Mauritshuis, The Hague
            October 1, 2005–January 22, 2006

            2018救济金6元棋牌With utmost diligence and patience Van Mieris painted interiors, scenes from daily life and portraits, primarily in a small format. He made likenesses of well-to-do burghers, famous or important residents of Leiden, and self-portraits and portraits of his wife Cunera van der Cock. He also produced a few history pieces and allegorical scenes. The strength of his work lies in his subtle and remarkable painting technique and palette. The way in which he depicted the various fabrics, materials and textures is nothing short of miraculous: an almost perfect miniature rendering of reality.

            Art of Painting, Johannes Vermeer

            Special exhibition with Vermeer's Art of Painting

            VERMEER FROM VIENNA
            Mauritshuis, The Hague
            March 25 –June 26, 2005

            museum info:
            Very exceptionally, one of the most celebrated paintings by Vermeer, The Art of Painting2018救济金6元棋牌, c 1666-8, from the collection of the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna will be on loan for three months. Vermeer's careful rendering of the details and different surface textures as well as the subtle gradations of light are testimonies to Vermeer's supreme accomplishments as a painter.

            In 1996 the Mauritshuis mounted a survey exhibition of Vermeer's work. Unfortunately, the condition of The Art of Painting was not good enough to travel to the show. In the meantime, the painting has been restored, and nine years later Vermeer's showpiece can be seen to full advantage in The Hague.

            A Young Woman at the Virginals, attributed to Johannes Vermeer

            Will Vermeer's A Young Woman at the Virginals feel at home in Las Vegas?

            according to Arts.telegraph*
            Las Vegas casino owner Steve Wynn is revealed this week as the mystery buyer of Vermeer's A Young Woman Seated at the Virginals at Sotheby's last July for £16.2 million. On Thursday (April 28), he opens Wynn, Las Vegas, a new $2.7 billion resort complete with golf course, lakes, a fake mountain and an art gallery in which the tiny painting will be exhibited. Sotheby's spent years trying to establish that the painting, previously dismissed as a fake, was an original. Even then, not everyone was convinced. After the sale, Sotheby's described the buyer only as "anonymous," but its re-appearance in Las Vegas confirms that it was Wynn who took the gamble.

            The strip's newest and most expensive casino resort is just days away from opening its doors. Wynn, Las Vegas is a 2.7 billion dollar resort. It will have more than 27-hundred rooms. The resort features a large, man-made mountain in the front of the hotel, with huge waterfalls facing inwards. That structure alone cost an estimated 130-million dollars to build.

            2018救济金6元棋牌Wynn, Las Vegas (the name of the new casino) will also feature a Ferrari-Maserati dealership inside. As for entertainment, Franco Dragone will put on a multi-million water-themed production called "La Reve." The two-thousand-plus theater-in-the-round includes a one-million gallon performance pool that doubles as a stage. Wynn will include 18 new restaurants and bars overseen by celebrity chefs.

            Exhibition of Vermeer's contemporary

            GERARD TER BORCH
            The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA)
            February 27–May 22, 2005

            (in Detroit this exhibit is organized by George Keyes, DIA chief curator and curator of European paintings)

            museum information:
            Gerard ter Borch is one of the most celebrated of all seventeenth-century Dutch painters, yet remarkably, no exhibition in the United States has ever focused on his work. To assess his important oeuvre, the American Federation of Arts and the National Gallery of Art are organizing an exhibition of this great master's paintings. Gerrit ter Borch will comprise approximately forty-five paintings, including Ter Borch's most striking early pictures from the 1630's, the mid-career genre paintings for which he is most famous, depictions of historical events, and the small and delicate portraits that brought the artist prosperity throughout his professional life.

            This exhibition will not only give museum visitors in the United States their first opportunity to see a broad overview of Ter Borch's work, but will also result in the first major English-language publication on the artist. The exhibition catalogue, to be published by the American Federation of Arts and the National Gallery of Art, will include an essay by Arthur K. Wheelock, Jr, Curator of Northern Baroque Paintings at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, on Ter Borch's life and work; a study of the modernity of Ter Borch's paintings by Alison McNeil Kettering, Professor of Art History at Carleton College; and an examination of Ter Borch's painting technique by Arie Wallert, Conservator of Paintings at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam. In addition, each painting in the exhibition will be illustrated and discussed in a separate entry.

            CAREL FABRITIUS (1622–1654): DAS WERK

            museum press release, January 2005:
            In collaboration with the Mauritshuis The Hague, the Staatliches Museum Schwerin for the first time shows the complete known oeuvre of Fabritius, which consists of 14 paintings. His paintings, scattered all over the world, are highlights of the collections of which they are a part. This exhibition affords the singular opportunity of a synopsis of paintings which feature in collections in Boston, Los Angeles, London, Moscow, Warsaw, Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam, Salzburg, Munich, Hannover and Schwerin.

            Carel Fabritius, a pupil of Rembrandt, was undoubtedly one of the most ingenious and versatile painters of the Dutch seventeenth century. His work had a decisive influence on Johannes Vermeer, Pieter de Hooch and Emanuel de Witte. The explosion of the municipal arsenal in Delft in 1654 not only took the painter's life but destroyed many of his work as well. Masterpieces such as The Goldfinch, The Sentry and the View in Delft, with a musical instrument seller's stall, rank among the most handsome and famous of Dutch paintings. Fabritius' complete (modest) oeuvre will be brought together in cooperation with the Staatliches Museum in Schwerin.

            catalogue:
            Almost half of these works have been attributed to Fabritius only after the publication of Christopher Brown's catalogue raisonée in 1981 and are presented together for the first time in the exhibition catalogue. The catalogue includes a comprehensive essay describing the life and work of the artist, a text on his means of composition as well as entries on every single painting. All paintings are illustrated in full color. His connection to Rembrandt is assessed and the influence on the Delft School discussed. The book is published in English, German and Dutch.

            Exhibition of Dutch trompe-l'œil painter at the Mauritshuis

            THE EYE DECEIVED: TROMPE-L'OEIL PAINTINGS BY CORNELIUS GIJSBRECHTS
            Mauritshuis, The Hague
            February 4 –May 15, 2005

            museum info:
            The originally Flemish painter Gysbrechts entered the service of the Danish court in 1668. In the following four years he produced a unique series of trompe-l'œil paintings for King Frederik III and his successor Christiaan V. While various seventeenth-century artists attempted to paint the odd trompe-l'œilrepresentation, Gysbrechts made it his specialty. His partially open wall cabinets, letter racks, turned-back cloths and hunting still lifes ingeniously deceive the viewer's eye.

            (The magic of the ordinary: Dutch painting from Adriaen Brouwer to Johannes Vermeer)

            from the museum website:
            2018救济金6元棋牌 Elegant ladies in satin dresses, maids in starched bonnets, and pensive scholars in their studies, there is hardly a period we seem to know more about than life in the Golden Age. Yet the well-ordered world of the Dutch burghers has a flip side where the lady of the house is drinking wine in broad daylight and an uncouth peasant is pulling disgusted faces. This exhibition presents the great variety of subjects and meanings of the kind of painting so unsatisfactorily classed as genre painting.

            Key works in the collections of the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, longstanding partner of many successful joint projects, and of the Städel itself form the basis on which a new generic concept is to be developed. Dismissed by contemporary art critics, these works were so popular with audiences at the time that painters even specialized in the production of such art. Well-known artists like Jan Vermeer, Adriaen Brouwer and Jan Steen developed their own styles and storylines, which fascinate viewers to this day and whose comic details charm us into laughter.

            Among the painters in the exhibition are: Frans van Mieris, Adriaen Brouwer, Adriaen van Ostade, Gerrit Dou, Gerrit ter Borch, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch and Gabriel Metsu.

            Vermeer lecture

            THE LIGHT AND SHADE AND THE LADIES: THE QUIET WORLD OF JAN VERMEER
            Presented by Barbara Johnston - adjunct professor of art history, Virginia
            Commonwealth University
            Monday, April 4, 7:30 p.m., Williamsburg Library Theatre, 515 Scotland Street, Williamsburg, Virginia
            (USA)

            To look at a painting by Jan Vermeer is to enter an enchanted world of silent women and glowing light. The preeminent painter of women in a society fascinated by them, Vermeer's small, intimate paintings have a unique quality that sets them apart from the work of his contemporaries. From the virtuous kitchen maid to the dutiful housewife, Vermeer's women occupy a world of their own, a world of serenity and order that was the ideal of womanhood in seventeenth-century Holland. But things are not always as they seem, for Vermeer was a master of subtext, and in each painting, he has given us clues to help us understand the inner life of his ladies. By examining these works, we come to realize that a great deal lies beneath the serene surfaces Vermeer's women present to the world.

            This Century Art Gallery and the library continues their popular art-lecture series which is made possible through the Gallery's partnership program with the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. A reception provided by This Century Art Gallery will follow.
