Transcript of vermeer

During Vermeer's life.. Vermeer lived in the time of the Renaissance. He lived from October 31, 1632 to December 15, 1675. Johannes
Vermeer Julia Harvath Importance Vermeer was a dutch painter in the 1600's who painted a lot of women with similar backgrounds in many of his pictures. When he was alive, his paintings were not very popular. Until 1888, that's when people started to look at his paintings more. But obviously he was not around anymore. Vermeer's dad, Reijnier Janszoon was a middle-class worker of silk and caffa (a mixture of silk & cotton or wool). Reijiner married Digna Baltus in 1615. Vermeer had an older sister who was 12 years older than him. Their father was painting around 1625. When he died, Vermeer thought it was his job to continue his painting business. Biographical information contiued... Vermeer got married to a Catholic woman named Catharina Bolenes in 1653. Vermeer's step-mother was considerably rich and got him to convert to Catholicism by the wedding. Vermeer and Catharina lived with her mother for the rest of their lives. Catharina had 15 children, but 4 of them died before they were even baptized. Dutch Painter Biographical Information Poem Johannes,
A Dutch Painter,

accomplished membership of a guild, considered best painter of The Dutch Golden Age,
& converted to Catholicism,
who said "What is Truth? Truth is something so noble that if God could turn aside from it,
I would keep the Truth and turn aside from God".
Vermeer. Historical Figure Rembrandt (Harmenszoon van Rijn) lived from July 15, 1606 – October 4, 1669. He was also a dutch painter and print maker. He was considered one of the greatest. His paintings were rather small but had lots of detail. He had a few paintings of woman like Vermeer, however he also painted other things such as nature and groups of people. Contemporary Figure (Pablo) Picasso was alive from October 25, 1881 – April 8, 1973. He lived in France most of his adult
life, but was born in Spain.
He loved
to use bright colors
like Vermeer. Acrostic isually liked to paint checkered floors Information * When Vermeer died, he left his family in great debt. Opinion In my opinion, Vermeer was a great painter. He was one of the first painters to use bright colors in his paintings with great detail. His artwork wasn't actually famous until he died, and only 35 pieces are known today. I think he has made an impact on many lives, especially since we still talk about him today.
