      Finding “The Little Street” in a real place in Delft, he said, allows us “to get that little bit closer” to Vermeer, in the city where he was born and raised, married the love of his life Author: Nina Siegal.   Jan Vermeer Biography Painter (c. –c. ) Jan Vermeer was born circa Octo , in Delft, Netherlands. In , joined the Delft painter’s guild. He served as its dean from

    Art in Delft’s Golden Age. Delft is the city of Johannes Vermeer. The painter was born in Delft in and spent his entire life in the city. Several of his paintings depict Delft as it was, such as ‘The Little Street’ and ‘View of Delft’. Vermeer’s painting, “The Astronomer”, is often paired with his similar work, The Geographer and they are thought to be companion pieces. This is because they clearly have similar scientific themes, common among painters at this time, and they both seem to feature the same scientist at work in the same room.

    A Lady Writing is signed with a monogram on the lower frame of the picture on the back wall, but like most Vermeer paintings, it is not dated. The painting style and technique, as well as the woman’s costume and hairdo, however, relate to other works that appear to belong to the artist’s mature phase, in the mid-to-late s.   Vermeer is known as a meticulous detailer of the everyday. But his paintings have more to do with his patrons and other artists than life in the Dutch Republic, writes Alastair Sooke.
