In this talk we will discuss Vermeer’s much- loved paintings, and popularity. We will experience this exhibition, which brings together 9 of the 35 known Vermeer original paintings. Focus is on the iconography of Vermeer’s paintings, the realities of women in the Dutch 17th century and why Vermeer is so loved and enjoyed today.
