Johannes Vermeer Painting Canvas Prints And Johannes Vermeer ... I had not seen this painting before, but this young woman bears a striking resemblance to the actress Scarlett Johannsson who played Greit in Girl with the Pearl Earring

I have a fantasy in which some enterprising curator brings all 27 surviving paintings by Vermeer together in one show. I'd travel to the ends of the earth to see it.

Vermeer Still Life Vermeer never painted a still life as such, but many of his interiors included them. A white jug like this appears in a 3 of his 37 paintings, a maid asleep, the girl with a wineglass and the music lesson. These images include seduction and inebriation, those were very prudish times.I have had great difficulty finding a pure white delft jug, but I managed to finally get one, with a little help from a can of spray paint.
