Vermeer is one of my favorite artists. Dr Lelik's lecture was both informative and a meditative experience. Seeing the beautiful paintings and hearing her description of the stillness allowed me to appreciate the paintings at a different level. My brain stepped aside to let me have a feeling experience of the paintings. I am so sad that I cannot go to the Vermeer exhibit in Amsterdam, but this lecture gave me an appreciation of Vermeer that a crowded exhibit could not equal.
Timea’s approach to Vermeer is focused on the interiority of the painter, his beliefs, his character. Beautiful!
This was a wonderful and insightful tour of this artist’s work. The means by which Vermeer achieved the sense of calm and monumentality with seemingly mundane subjects was beautifully brought out. I’ve already signed up for her Matisse talk
