Vermeer was an absolute master in creating seemingly real spaces, where you can measure the distance from the window to the wall and the ceiling. When looking at his paintings, it feels as if he has opened a door for the viewer and that you are welcome to step into his world. The soft light coming in from the window, the quiet scenes of women reading, polite conversation, the tones from a harpsichord. How does he do it? 
Over the last 150 years, miles of publications filled our bookshelves, numerous documentaries, and lectures to be found on you-tube, and last but not least novels and movies, try to shed a light on the master and his work. With this Context Conversation, we are going to step into Vermeer’s magical world and discover his use of perspective and optics, and his use of (real or imagined) architectural and decorative elements.
Led by an expert on Art History, Alette Fleischer, this interactive seminar will focus on Vermeer and his world and his work. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with increased knowledge about Vermeer and desire to examine up close all of Vermeer’s paintings in museum collections in the USA and Europe.

This conversation is the second in a two-part series. Each seminar can be joined independently and in any order.
Volume 1: Vermeer’s Masterpieces with Alette Fleischer
Volume 2: Vermeer’s Artistic Secrets with Alette Fleischer

This conversation is suitable for all ages.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

We know so little about Vermeer.

Even if we know so little about that genius, this converversation will bring you so much, there are so many insights!

Vermeer Artistic Secrets

It was a very interesting incursion into a subject seldom discussed in depth in seminars on artistic production. I appreciated the information on current studies of Vermeer methods by new technical methods.
